Actually, they were cookies for the kids' amazing carers at Kindy. The idea and recipe comes from Bakerella and I have seen it on quite a few blogs since then. This lovely blog, Make it Do put the Christmas twist on it.
My effort (assisted by the young lady) was quite dodgy but it was fun! The girls at Kindy loved them, and I think that is the most important feature. Not that I stuffed up the layering on my first one and put soft, fluffy white sugar in on top of the chocolate chips instead of firm, sticky brown sugar.
