Cookies Shared Around the WorldJanuary 23, 2013
A few months ago we had a very sweet couple visit us from Oregon. Traveling with their two beautiful yellow labs, they were enjoying a road trip seeing the sites of the Central Coast. After picnicking in our gardens, they offered me an AMAZING cookie which was so tasty!
Linda was gracious enough to share the recipe with me and you too! This cookie holds a dear spot in her heart. Named Pride of the Corps, Linda sent these cookies around the world to her son on his various deployments while in the Marine Corps and they were well received.
Enjoy and maybe even send them to someone you know serving our country.
