I love creating cookies for my mom. We brainstorm together about what design would suit her need. She marvels at how good they look and is still a little shocked I’m the one who can make them. I did use to burn everything and once (infamously) ruined boxed macaroni and cheese. For the record, I was twelve.
I love it most when she wants cookies for her senior golf partners and friends. These women keep my mom feeling young by still swinging the clubs in their 80’s and 90’s. And they love cookies. My mom asked for these to be made special so the ladies knew how much they are cared for by their young friend down the street. They were over the moon excited for the cookies and for having a friend like my mom. I couldn’t agree with them more.
