Tears filled my eyes and horror filled my heart. I had no courage to open that page and see what’s written there. I knew it was not good news.
My hands trembled while I was forcing myself to read the contents. My heart was pounding.
Hubby dear put his hand around me and gave a small squeeze to tell me silently that we will face this together.
I read the contents, felt myself relax a bit.
I turned to my hubby and said, ‘Honey, this month’s power bill won’t kill us!’
But god knows – next month’s bill might give me a heart attack. So I am not taking any chances and going stove top way to make these delicious cookies. Make these and don’t worry about your electricity bill!

Note : I found these to be a bit too sweet and might reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup next time.
