While many of us celebrate Christmas this evening, here is a quick recipe to make for a last minute treat as a host or hostess gift. This recipe of fridge cookies is a tradition of my youth, it is a dessert made by my paternal grandmother, who sadly passed away few years ago, transmitted to my mother, and I allow myself to transmit it to you in my turn. I hope you like it, it’s a real delight for the sweet teeth above us.
