There are few things cuter than a fat baby hand holding a cookie.
This little hand keeps sneaking cookies while I'm not looking.
I can't blame him.
These cookies are soft and molasses-y, they have peanut butter, they're a little spicy...
...and they're the perfect afternoon treat to accompany tea or a good book.
