I am a big fan of Raggedy Ann and Andy.  In my younger days, my collection included a watch, sheets, blankets, towels, dolls, books, toys, tea set you name it and I had it.  I made my first Raggedy Ann when my niece, Crystal was born (that was a few years ago) she has 3 children of her own today.  I just finished another Raggedy Ann for our new granddaughter, Cora. 

When my daughter, Morgan was in Girl Scout camp one summer, she sent me a letter asking for me to send her candy and her Raggedy Ann.  She wanted the Raggedy Ann so when she looked at it she would think of me, her mother. 

Then one year at Halloween my friend Bonnie and myself dressed as Raggedy Ann and Andy.  We even won a prize. 

Made these cookies called Raggedy Ann Cookies, crisp on the edge and chewy in the middle.  With a different taste, that of Maple. And speaking of maple, its almost maple harvest in Maine.  The sugar shacks will be open for Maple Sunday very soon.       Happy Baking,  Andi

  4. Hi Andi,
    I couldn't help but think of my daughter who was also a great Raggedy Ann fan, I think she still has her doll. Your cookies are just awesome and belong in my cookie jar. Hope you have a wonderful week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
