mmmm.. I"m really trying hard to come up with the best way to tell you all about my high school days with Jolyn. Should I sell you our secrets about our "out of towners" (our friends that were boys in the nearby towns, wink wink) OR should I tell you about the very inapproprate jokes that were made when we played balderdash. Maybe, the pranks. no. I'd like to keep my records clean, haha.
I wish I could tell you about what a good friend she was, always there for me through a lot of thick stuff, and a lot of thin. I had a lot of thick stuff in high school and she was there, jamba juice in hand. After my chemo weeks quite often I didn't feel good and we'd bunker down in her house and consume handfuls of and handfuls of calories. Cadbury eggs. Mint M&M's. Applesauce Cookies. Homemade Caramels. Snickerdoodles. all sorts of junk food.
She was a true friend. now she is half a country away, but for a short time in our married life we lived 1.5 hours apart and got to see each other ever month or so. happy days. One of those times I snagged her memory filled applesauce cookie recipe we made so much. ha. or more like ATE so much.
These cookies are light and sweet. SUPER FLUFFY. Their texture is much like a pumpkin cookie.
