9. Mildred's Lemon Cookies

Mildred-s Lemon Cookies 3

Mildred was our office secretary for many, many years. Not only was she one of the most efficient and organized gals to ever do it, but she was also extremely thoughtful. Through all the birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and every celebration in between, she constantly made each person on our crew feel loved. Her go-to party treat was often Mildred's Lemon Cookies. She'd make the perfect lemon cookie and top them with a swirl of fluffy, lemony frosting. They were so delicious and always praised! This sweet lady retired a few years ago, but when she did, we (sort of jokingly) insisted that learning how to make Mildred's Lemon Cookies should be a part of new-hire training. Well, now every time we celebrate, it gives us a reason to think of her. It's just the most darling tradition!
