Hello, and ready for cooking up some cookies for the holidays that is me! Jordan noticed I was getting out of the barnyard a bit too often so she put a yoke on me so I’d stay put. So now that I am where I am supposed to be I am getting ready for the holidays in a big way. Big pies, cakes and cookies! Yum Yum! Pudge and all the barn pals are looking forward to Thanksgiving here on the farm. I think you’ll enjoy this recipe too!
Easy, tasty and oh so divine! Old fashioned Orange Drops from my Grandma. A family favorite anytime!
