It feels as if only yesterday my son was born. I can still clearly remember the moment when I held him in my arms for the first time. The innocent angel staring into my eyes, it is an emotion which cannot be explained in words.
The other day I got a letter from the City, which says that it is time I have to register him for School. School? I have never realized that he had grown so big. As I called up the schools to have information and deciding which one is best for hin, I started to have butterflies in my stomach, the wierd feeling – as if it was me who had to go to the school for the first time.
I made these cookies the other day, for Ansh. He loved them, I hope you will love them too.

If you dot have brown sugar, use normal white sugar.
If Hershey Kisses are not available, then skip this step. The cookies taste amazing even with out the chocolate.
