Black Eyed Pea Cookies_Sweetsugarbelle

For as long as I can remember, my family has had the same menu on New Year's Day.  Pork roast, cabbage, corn bread, and black-eyed peas.  As I kid, I loathed the first day of the year but not nearly so much as my poor brother, who almost always swallowed a single black-eyed pea kicking and screaming.  Maybe if it had been cookies, he'd have been more appreciative of our tradition. These days I'm down for the peas, but even if I weren't, I'd … [Read more...]

Bitten Apple Cookies

Bitten Apple Cookies

Rather than purchasing a bitten apple cookie cutter use a small scalloped circle to cut an apple cookie and create your … [Read more...]
