What's for coffee break? Muffkies

What’s for coffee break today? Why, it’s ‘Muffkies’ – courtesy of Cloverdale Reporter reader Susan Hall, who sent in a recipe along with a sample.

“This recipe came from England with my great Grandmother Fielding in the early 1900s. They were originally called Grandma Cookies but my son in his wisdom at age 5 renamed them Muffkies. Once you have tasted them you will know why. He is 40 now and insists that it is not Christmas until he has his Muffkies.”

Along with her treasured family recipe, Susie cautions: “For the first batch check them at 12 minutes because the oven setting may be different from my Grandmother’s, she used a woodstove.”


We are receiving some great local recipes and memories – and we can’t wait to share them in our upcoming Christmas edition.
