Delicious "Lactation Cookies"

For those of you who love a good cookie, this is a great recipe.  If you are nursing, you will doubly like this recipe as it should help boost your milk supply (hence the name, "lactation cookies").   The recipe can be found HERE.  I have read that the Brewer's Yeast is one of the most important ingredients in this recipe as far as a boost in milk is concerned.  However, I bought Nutritional Yeast out of the bulk bins at Winco since I couldn't find Brewer's Yeast (and I figured they were fairly similar as far as nutrition goes) .  Nutritional Yeast is different than regular yeast, and is much more expensive, so if you can find it in a bulk bin you can just buy what you need (2-4 TBS).

Let me tell you, these taste soooo good.  My entire family likes them!  It would be no problem at all for me to add this in to my daily diet ;) 

The recipe says to bake each batch for 12 minutes, but if you like softer cookies, I found 10 minutes to be perfect.

Enjoy!
