A short post, but I wanted to share this. My favorite cookie is not White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. Mine is French Lace Cookies, which are bloody hard to make but delicious. However, I have made a point of naming these as Mina's favorite cookies in the book, so maybe I shall make some for inspiration. And every case of the snifflies needs a good dose of sweets.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
