Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a sweet start to the new year! I spent the first real snowfall of the year making these whoopie pies and listening to American Like Me by America Ferrera. To be honest, it was the first new recipe that’s worked in a while. I was so excited I wanted to yell “Whoopie!”. In all seriousness, this is basically a sweet, but not overly sweet, cookie-cake sandwich. It’s great all on its own, or as a base for adding more flavors. I decided to add a dollop of raspberry jam from a jar to some of the whoopie pies. It got the job done, and I didn’t have to mess with more dishes to clean, so it was a win-win for me.
Good Morning and Happy Saturday! This morning I’d like to share my Grandma’s butter cookie recipe. It’s another Christmas classic that is requested every year by at least one family member, much to my mother’s chagrin. I, however, always loved rolling out and decorating these cookies over the holidays. I have been known to break this recipe out for any sort of holiday and season.
