My neighbor has been baking up a storm and I'm reaping the benefits. She dropped off some of these cookie --- definitely reminds me of what would get at out local bakery growing up. Other than my absolute favorite as a kid, black and white cookies. She said she used some of her "good sprinkle stash" and she said it made a difference. I would happily eat any type.
I am sitting here with a cookie and iced coffee. Ah the simple things. Just thought I would post the recipe. they are very good!

I'm not in the best mood today so when my neighbor dropped off a few cookies --- who am I to say no. It was a comfort food type of day so far. I used to have these as a kid --- I don't usually have cookies in the house and this hit the spot.
Your neighbor is very sweet (YUM on the farro!) and I'm sorry you are having a bad day. Yes, those are definitely "make you smile and feel like a hug" cookies. Apologies that I did not include that in my previous comment...my brain went to "would I make these"....my DH will eat anything with sugar and we always have cookies in the house (for him). Again, my apologies. I wasn't trying to rain on your parade or your neighbor's generosity. Mea culpa.
Thoreau said, 'A man is rich in proportion to the things he can leave alone.'
Sometimes it the smile that comes from the cheerful looking cookie more so than the actual taste of the cookie that's important! And it's the thought that counts, of course! Enjoy your gifts. Your neighbor sounds amazing!
Applecrisp - I've eyeballed this recipe for something different for meetings (I usually make chocolate chip cookies), but wasn't certain they'd be worth the effort. I should have known that SmittenKitchen would be good, her recipes always are.
Hm, I was thinking of making Chocolate Orange Shortbread this weekend, but maybe I'll do Confetti cookies now. Or what the heck, I could do BOTH and freeze some for later!
Thanks for posting.
