December 2013 SG Cookie Swap Coconut Macaroons

December 2013 SG Cookie Swap Coconut Macaroons

A year ago I sat making a recipe card scanned from one of my Mom's originals of a favorite she made with all of the family children.  It turned out to be the day she died, so I dedicated to her, printed it and gave it out to people who came to celebrate her life.   So, this year when the Cookie Recipe Swap came around, I decided to do the same thing.   This is one of her recipe cards.   I scanned it with my FlipPal and blended the background into mine but it's her handwriting.   I think I might make this a tradition in her memory each December.  
For this recipe card I used:
BMU Shabby Bakery Collection
AWI Merry Christmas Collection Biggie (retired)
PWR To You From Me Collection Biggie
Alis Hand Font
and my Mom's recipe card

    Oh I love that idea! What a great way to remember her and one of your favourite activities with her!  I am sure she would find this a blast! Love the handwritten card blended in, it gives a very personal feel to the card.  Well done!

    just beautiful. Macaroons are one of my favorites too.

    Beautiful card.  I noticed it right away as I looked through the swap file. The retro styled aprons in the background are perfect for a heritage card like this.

    I liked this card as soon as I saw it and wondered if it was your mother's handwriting. It was just too realistic not to be! I love the story behind this and think it's a wonderful tradition to have. I'll be making these for sure!

    Wonderful idea! What a special tradition.

    Love this Marilyn! Beautiful card. And when you read my next article you'll know great minds think alike. ;)

    What a special memory and wonderful way to honor your mom!  Lovely card, too.  I like the measuring spoons added to the cluster.
