Notes

Another family recipe

Another memory I have of something that Bertha prepared was sugar cookies every time Peter came to visit. There was always a pecan in the center and the first thing Peter did was to remove the pecan. When Bertha asked him why he did this he replied that pecans just were not good for him. He has since learned to appreciate the finer things in life.
