These little beauties are scrumptious and addictive! Grab a few cookies, pour yourself a cup of tea, find a good book, sit back and enjoy the little pleasures of life. 



Step 1

Add the unsalted butter (1/2 cup or 1 cup (double batch)), vanilla & sugar mix to a bowl. Mix until creamy with an electric mixer.

Step 2

Add the flour mix:Gradually add the flour mix to the butter, mixing until fully incorporated (do not over mix).

Step 3

Shape the dough: Scoop 1 tbsp dough and form in a ball. Place on lined baking sheet. Bake in the centre of the oven until slightly puffed and golden between 8 and 10 minutes. Place cookies on a cooling rack to cool about 5 minutes.

We were always comfortable in the kitchen and have developed a passion for flavourful, easy & healthy food. We moved to Saskatchewan from Montreal, Quebec 15 years ago. We fell in love with the amazing products created here in Saskatchewan and want to bring fresh, local baking to all of Canada.
