A brief description of these cookies – they are darn good! They are chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside. Beware, they disappear fast. At least that’s the case in our cookie monster filled family.
On another note, I am feeling darn good too, because Azerbaijan won first place in Europe’s most popular song contest – Eurovision! For the first time! This is big for Azerbaijan. It means that Europe is coming to Baku for next year’s Eurovision. Hooray!
