About 20 years ago, in the school yard, a kind mom shared some of her freshly baked cookies with me, while we waited for the kids to come out. They were fantastic and I told her so.

    Happy boxing day friends☺️ This is not an instant pot recipe… And it’s not my own creation either.

I might be addicted…they really are so good! For my work colleagues, these were the cookies that I brought in for the potluck. I got many requests for the recipe, so here you go! Happy baking😊 Here’s  the link to the original recipe (which I followed to the letter, except that I omitted the yellow food coloring) LEMON CRINKLE COOKIES from Cooking…
