      I followed the hub with tips from missolive and she has another hub on free image sites. I can´t remember which one exactly but i got it from a link from that hub. The composite photos was an idea after looking through my Jamie Oliver cook books, this is a style he has used in a recent book. Have a go vespawoolf its fun to see your hub change face with a new style.

      I add cinnamon to a lot of baked goods. I'm sure it's very good in these cookies, will have to give them a try.

      I'm glad it's paying off! Could you please share on which photo site you found the chocolate, cinnamon and peanut images? I'd been considering doing something similar, more like the food blogs.

      Comments much appreciated Vespawoolf, To be honest i have never been a fan of peanut butter but am getting into it, and as for the cookies? in 2 days 2 batches have flown out of the oven! what does that tell you!

      Thanks for the votes and the effort of experimenting on a new layout is paying off :-))

      Hope you do try them soon Grinning Gremlin, i have made 2 batches of these recently. One batch was for a lunch with 25 people, i was worried they may not like the cinnamos but they devoured all the cookies. Cinnamos just adds a depth of flavour. Go on give em a go :-)
