When I read though this recipe on CD Kitchen Recipe site the other day, I was immediately drawn to it. Of course I had to bake a batch right away.
They are delightfully dainty and crisp, just the perfect little nibble with a cup of afternoon tea. Be forwarned, they are like potato chips in that just one will never do!

Here is the link to the recipe on the CD Kitchen site:
My notes: I used Malt Syrup as that's what I had on hand in lieu of the Molasses. Instead of a plastic food bag, I used a pastry bag with a plain 1/4-inch tip to form the cookies, and baked on silicone baking mats.
I had in mind making the following little gifts, and they worked out perfectly.
Something you might keep in mind if you need a little place setting favor, or a 'just because' gift.
You can do this with ANY small cookie, or homemade candies, etc. it's just a fun presentation.
If you're friends aren't fond of tea cups and saucers, it works just as well in pretty little bowls or mugs.
Perfect piled high into vintage teacups, wrapped in clear cellophane for a couple of tea drinking friends as a little holiday treat.
When I do something like this I try to choose cups that "fit" the recipient's personality.
... or favorite flowers.
... or a favorite china style like this vintage Blue and White from Homer Laughlin.
