    "Keeps well for 3-4 weeks." You must not have any cookie monsters at your place! I'm lucky to get 3-4 days out of a batch of cookies here! =D
    I am SO looking forward to "empty-nest syndrome"!

    I'm laughing! I bake twice a week. 3 loaves of 100% whole wheat bread, 4 batches of cookies. Good luck getting all the above to last 3 or 4 days! Even the Schwann's guy times his delivery for one of my baking days! Yes he always looks forward to trying my cookies out! Had to let him know that they are all 100% whole grain! Never use store flour ever again in my house! No one misses it either!
