    I love everything about your site!!!!! Thank you for creating this beautiful world!!! I made these cookies and they were a huge success !!! I used plums instead of peaches, because I had 40 plums from a friends tree. I was wondering, maybe I did something wrong because my cookies, when left in tupperware over night, stuck together and the were very fragile. I gently pulled them apart and put them in the fridge. For the future, do I need to keep them in the fridge ?

      They are definitely a more fragile cookie. To make in advance, I like to bake them fresh, then put parchment between them and freeze them until an hour so before you plan to serve. xoxoxo
