Crown Cookies

Crown Cookies (12)

As it’s quite rare to hear any good news stories (and as I am in desperate need of treats), let’s keep celebrating Prince George’s arrival.  Baking is always my preferred mode of celebration, and these cookies are very quick and easy to make and can, of course, be made in other shapes for less regal occasions.  I added the cherries and glitter to give them a bit of sparkle, but I’m sure they’d be just as good without such adornments.
