In her locally flavored blog, "Michigan Cottage Cook," Budde Heiner earlier this week shared a recipe for a special refrigerator cookie that rolls in colored coconut or sprinkles to give the edges color and flavor. The coconut or sprinkles can be the color most associated with a particular holiday or season, she says.

"I grew up with a family who cooked together, especially at Christmas cookie time," Budde Heiner wrote. "My Grandpa would crack the shells of the nuts and pick out the nutmeats. Grandma would be in the corner of the kitchen working on the granite-ware table making her cookies. She made the molasses cookies with a decoration of a couple of raisins in the middle and grape-jelly filled cookies."
