Taking care of a toddler at home isn't an easy job at all. Unlike my older daughter, this little one is more active. He wants to participate in everything I do. Anyway, I managed to find some time to bake some cookies with my favourite nuts CASHEW NUTS !!

Followed the receipe taken from "NEW YEAR COOKIES BY ALAN OOI " receipe book. Although the receipe is APPLE SNAPS, but isn't any apple in it. As usual, I did some amendments to the ingredients & method..
