These are my most favorite cookies of all time. My Grandma Alldredge (my dad's mom), would always make these cookies and have them ready for us when we came for a visit while we were young. I made these the other day for a cookie exchange we were having in Relief Society and they turned out to be a big hit with everyone and I received plenty of compliments. So I thought I would share them on the blog. I hope you enjoy them too!

Welcome to my site! I've tweaked a few things and have now added labels for specific fruits and veggies. I'm hoping it will be easier for you to find recipes that go with what you have in your house right now! Happy Cooking!
