Breakfast Cookies

Our kitchen window looks out on the street.  Some mornings I like to just sit by the window with a cup of coffee and breakfast, enjoying breakfast and the view of the street.

Early morning is always peaceful, yet active.  Runners zip along the sidewalk.  People sleepily stroll while walking their dogs.  Birds chirp and hop along the branches of the trees lining the street.  And I sti watching it all.

These cookies are just right to enjoy while watching the morning unfold.  Full of flavor, light and filling they are easy to enjoy while sitting at home or grab on the way out the door.
