Regardless if you like s'mores, Peeps marshmallow bunnies for Easter, or Nabisco Pinwheels chocolate and marshmallow cookies, everyone loves marshmallows in something, if not everything! When I received this lovely story about a girl's grandma's cookies that contained marshmallows, I just melted. Marshmallows make me giddy and have a way of making heartache in the world go away; they are just a happy food! With that being said, I present to you Grandma Shirley's Cuckoo Cookies, submitted by Taylor Kutchin from Chicago, Illinois.
When I hear the word “Cuckoo”, I often think of something or someone as being “crazy” or “nuts”. So why call a cookie cuckoo? I’ll never know for sure. But what I do know for sure is that my Grandma Shirley liked to make these cookies, and she was anything but cuckoo. She had so many fine qualities that made being around her a real treat. She was comforting and sweet, just like her cookies. She was completely devoted to those she loved. She was “one of a kind” and truly had a heart of gold.
