Happy Holidays from Pickles and Cake. I’m hoarding lots of recipes and stories to post. For some reason, no free time and blogging don’t seem to go very well together. Here is a treat! This holiday cookie recipe brings back some memories – I’m almost sure I made these with my mom growing up. The cookie creation memory is a bit fuzzy, but I recall exactly what the inside tastes like. The centers are melted life savers and jolly ranchers! Click here to enjoy. -chris
