Miffy Biscuits

These have got to be the most beautiful cookies ever.. My daughter Maya had lots of fun mixing, rolling and then stamping out these little beauties!  I picked up the cutters whilst in Hong Kong but i'm sure they can be purchased online.  

Maya showing all her talent!  Wow, that kept her busy :-)  Just what I like to see.
