Easter cookies, one for each member of our family, compliments of Bridgy!
I’ve been rolling out cookie dough on this old marble washstand for nearly 30 years! I bought it in 1992, at the old Spivey’s Antique store on May Avenue in Oklahoma City.
Two years after I bought it, I found a wonderful recipe in the June 1994 issue of Victoria Magazine for Graduation Heart Cookies. They were sweet, buttery cutout cookies, and I’ve made them every year for the past 24 years. I remember the first time I made them for my mother. She loved them so much, she copied down the recipe. When she died in December, I found it tucked between the pages of her old cook book. It was right there in her beautiful handwriting, on the page for stuffed eggplant and eggplant tomato casserole.
Bridgy loves to decorate cookies. She recently counted and organized all 38 bottles of sprinkles. That spotted one reminds me of Go, Dog, Go!
Sullivan likes to make them, too. Check out the animal cookies we made in November.
Recipe for Easter Cookies
Here is the recipe in my mom’s beautiful penmanship. This will be our first Easter without her. It’s hard not to mark the days, the milestones. Impossible, actually. She loved Easter. I know she is rejoicing in heaven with her Savior, our Resurrected Jesus.
I love and miss you, Mom.
