We mentioned that Rumblemum was doing bake sales - she wanted me to share a recipe with you all!
She hadn't heard of these cookies before she moved here, they're called Afghans. They're so simple to make, they don't need eggs (Rumblemum doesn't like eggs) and they're SO NOMMY (so she says. I don't buy it because there isn't any tuna in them)
Here is her favorite recipe for them.
