The Cookie Tin

My grandmother kept cookies in an old English toffee tin.  One of my fondest memories is going to Nanny's house and running back to the kitchen to see what was in the tin.  Most often there were leb cookies (a large, soft sugar cookie - not to be confused with lebkuchen!) perfect for dunking in a big glass of cold milk.  My sister was fortunate to have received the original tin from my grandmother's home. I will admit to being a tad jealous!  I found this one at an estate sale about 30 years ago.  It wasn't Nanny's but seeing it always reminds me of her.

That is a great shot of the tin. What a sweet memory. I would always run to the kitchen to see if Grandma had made my favorite banana cake with caramel frosting!

Thank goodness for Grandma's treats. We always stopped by after school to see what she had for us. All the good memories a simple treat can bring.

What a great story, Suzan! I love the pic. Reminds me of my wooden biscuit bowl that I was able to score, much to my siblings envy. :) It was my grandmother's, too.
