I forgot my mother's birthday this year. I didn't call, send a card, or even send an email. I know...I'm a bad son. But in my defense, Mumma was away on vacation the week of her birthday. (Ok already...she had her cell phone. I have no defense.) I made up for my slip with belated flowers and a tin of my Lime in the Coconut cookies, which Mumma absolutely loved (and hoarded like a cookie miser).
For Mother's Day, I emailed myself to remind myself to get a card and mail it so that it gets to mumma on time. (Since when are stamps $0.41 apiece, anyway!?) So if you've forgotten about Mother's Day, procrastinated too long, or just can't find the right gift, I've got the solution: Make your mother's day by making Mother's Day cookies. I suggest my Fake-Out-Eos, which are my take on everyone's favorite store-bought cookie: the Oreo. Stay tuned...recipe TK tonight!
With the help of FedEx, you can have a fresh batch of homemade cookies on your mother's doorstep just in time for her special day. The flipside, of course, is that because of FedEx you don't have an excuse not to send a batch of cookies to your mother--even if she is on vacation.
