When I was growing up I lived on a beautiful, quiet country road. One of the things that made this road so beautiful, apart from the breathtaking scenery, was sharing a stretch of it with so many of my cousins, aunties, uncles and grandparents. I'm sure we would drive our parents crazy as we would run from house to house playing games and sharing special moments. Mum would always be ringing around all of the houses trying to find us. One day I was with my cousin Nicki and she taught me how to make these cookies (do you remember that Nicki?). They bring back sweet childhood memories of running carefree from home to home...if your house was boring there was always something fun going on at a house nearby. I cherish those sweet memories captured in the sugary, spicy chewy goodness of these cookies.
