Carrot Patch Cookies

I hope you had a nice Easter with your family.
Ours was delightful.
With a son- in-law who is half Cuban
our daughter cooked a fabulous meal
of 
Lechon (pork cooked in spices)
 black beans and rice
and tostones (fried plantains)
very yum!

I made a cute little treat for the grandkids 
to go with our dessert 
 
Carrot Patch Cookies
 Recipe on Spoonful
 You start with orange 
Mike & Ike candy
and green licorice 
for the carrots
 The base is put together 
using sugar wafer cookies 
and frosting as the "glue"
 I teased the grandkids
announcing
"Grandma is making you eat dirt!"
aka 
crushed chocolate wafer cookies
mixed with chocolate frosting.
 green paper for the garden bed
 All lined up in pretty rows
Carrot Patch Cookies
would also be a fun treat for 
birthday parties
or any Spring special occasion.
