We would pack the kids in the van and drive all night to get there. It was so much easier to drive and let the kids sleep. We would be tired, but those quiet conversations while we crossed all those miles were precious.
When we got to Grandma’s (Mom, to me), her cookie jar would be full of cookies, but in the oven were the favorite cookies, her Magic Meringue Cookies, and the kids loved them, they were truly a Grandma specialty. Here is the recipe, I hope you and yours enjoy them too.
