Orange and Pistachio Cookies.JPG

Right now I really don’t like eating, I suspect that someone, no names, has attached a bug on/in/to my organism. But like my mother always said when this happened to, at least I’m not gaining weight. And yes, I know I promised the Paper Chef Winner for yesterday but as you can see, there’s a delay. I’m very about this and as soon as I get it all together I will post it!
Until then these cookies will have to suffice; I realized that Spring really must be approaching because now the butter is soft enough to be made into a cookie dough, I don’t have a food processor you see and then butter can pose quite a problem during winter in this house, especially when you have to provide resident Italians with their sweet breakfast. Fortunately I can now vary the breakfast menu with the addition of cookies.
