Day 25 with this heArt of mine

Merry Christmas!!

Let’s make this quick, I’ve got presents to play with! Okay, my children have presents to play with but I want to watch ’em. :)

Thanks to the help of MJ’s mom, I’m sharing a Frosted Cashew Cookie today. It’s chewy and nutty and, thanks to a wonderful browned butter frosting, they are irresistible.
