Rite of passage

Evocative of childhood………the Snickerdoodle!  Just the name brings floods of memories…a neighborhood filled with children, big wheels, hot wheels, tricycles, bicycles, three flies up, mothers exchanging recipes…

On a recent visit, having only heard about the cookies from her Dad, my granddaughter asked to make them.

I unearthed the original recipe shared by my neighbor so many years ago.

Off to Junior Lifeguards the next morning; Snickerdoodles to share packed in her lunch bag.

A current memory made; a tradition passed on!
