St. Francis cookies

Before last night's SFO meeting - at which we were going to have a small celebration of St. Francis's feast - I looked on line for cookies associated with St. Francis.

I learned for several sources that apparently he was fond of almond cookies.

You learn something new every day.

I stopped a store on the way. They did not have "official" almond cookies, but they did have something like them. I bought them. Next year, maybe I'll try my hand at making some real ones.

I also discovered a couple of more recent recipes for "Wolf Paw Cookies," which he would not have known, but which were created in light of the story of Francis and the wolf of Gubbio.

Maybe I'll try those some time too.

A silly post? Perhaps. But Francis did consider himself a Fool for Christ.

Maybe like me he was a Fool with a sweet tooth.

Pax et bonum
