In honor of Mother’s Day (May 8th) and because May 9th was my mother’s birthday, I’m posting my mother’s favorite dessert recipe:
2 cups flour, 2 cubes butter (softened), 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
Mix or blend together and press on a large cookie sheet, or pizza pan. Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
1 cup powdered sugar, 8 ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese
Mix together and fold in 8 ounces of fat free Cool Whip and spread on crust.
2 boxes fresh strawberries sliced, 1 package strawberry glaze (I use Marie’s)
Mix together and spread on filling.
Chill four hours and serve.
I know I promised to blog this month about characters or various aspects about my upcoming book One for the Road. In a round about way, this Mother’s Day blog is connected to the story because I named one of the characters in that book after my mother. Tyler White’s momma is named Lura Mae.
I dedicated the book with love in memory of my mother, Lura Mae
And that’s what I’m thinking about this Mother’s Day. If you haven’t called your mother yet, do so. If you’re fortunate to have your mother nearby, give her a hug and a kiss from me.
