Janice Cooke provided us with the recipe used for Craft treats today. We wanted MORE! It was very tasty They tinted it green in honor of St Pat's Day. Janice's sister-in-laws served with her, Karen Steil and Linda Kraft. I think both sis-in-laws were back there but to be honest I was not paying enough attention. Please accept my apologies.
