I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruit cake fan! My husband, who's the inventor of a three-point bale mover, and I have a grown son. I'm a crafter and collector.

When my daughter, Katie, was 2, the juicy, ripe raspberries in my backyard inspired me to create this cutout cookie.

We treasure the hours we’ve shared in the kitchen creating not only delightful cookies, but lasting memories.—Cindy Beberman, Orland Park, Illinois
