Our Cookie Journal isn’t always about cookies (although I did use a cookie cutter to trim my Pumpkin Pie). It’s also about family and love and home. And sometimes cakes, pies, candies and Chex Party Mix! Giving Thanks is a tribute to my cousin, Heather Brion.

Just because Thanksgiving Day has passed, doesn’t mean we can’t stretch it into the weekend, or farther! Especially when it comes to Sugar Cookies or Pumpkin Bread, both of which are featured in my latest entry of Our Cookie Journal.

Creme de Menthe Cookies

Tulsa World sponsored a cookie contest last year and it was such a success that the publication is calling for new recipes again this year. Last December, Jacque Schneider submitted this memorable recipe for Creme de Menthe Cookies. The melt-in-your-mouth sandwich cookies are best made in stages, so as not to be too overwhelming. Better double the recipe though!
