MADE THESE A FEW YEAR'S AGO FOR A FRIEND OF MINE GRANDAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY. SHE WAS A COLLECTOR OF PIGGY'S. SO I FIGURED, HOW APPRORIATE. HER FAMILY AND GRANDPARENT'S LOVED THEM. THEY WERE A BIG HIT.

It was a rainy day and my grandchildren were stuck in the house. I saw the "piggy" recipe and decided it would be a good project. We worked together and laughed all afternoon. When we were finished my grandchildred delivered the cookies to several of our neighbors. Everyone laughed and enjoyed the cookies. They not only made you smile, they were delicious. I will always treasure this day and those memories.
