Gold top cookies

These delicious cookies my mum lovingly made me, certainly helped me get through the first few weeks of breastfeeding. She must have baked 200 of these bad boys in the first month.
No one mentions the night sweats, thirst and midnight (all night) munchies that comes with breastfeeding. I used to devour about 10 of these beauties in one sitting. Crumbs all over my poor bab at 4am but it’s probably why he’s the chunk he is today.
So if you are after some scrumptious cookies that are actually good for you and your mummy milk then get baking ladies x
