Happiness is….a plate of Martha Edmond’s Comfort cookies, a glass of wine, a cup of coffee or tea, and a good book. And, if the book is, “Bloodroot”, by Susan Wittig Albert, you’ll read all about the cookies. I’m reading this book now and ran across this recipe and immediately gathered up the ingredients and they have just come out of the oven. Wonderful aromas preceded the tasting and both are wonderful. So, cuddle up and enjoy.
