For those of you that like to bake, I have two recipes to share.
WARNING: The first recipe is a delicious, healthy cookie. The second is equally delicious but not so healthy, definitely skip if you are dieting!
If you aren’t lactating you can make up a different name for them…like yumyum health cookies! This are said to increase milk supply in lactating women and they sure are a good snack to have handy. Don’t be scared though if you aren’t nursing or are a man…they do not cause lactation……or do they???

1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar

Beat until well blended.
Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and brewer’s yeast
Add dry mix to butter mix.
