Baking with my mom when I was younger is one of my greatest memories. (We actally continue the tradition by making a million cookies the day before Christmas each year ). My mom is incredibly strong, smart, kind, and generous. She has been the rock for our family for a very long time, and I am indebted to her for that. So in her honor, a sweet treat on this mother’s day, for all the sweetness she has provided to so many over the years.
