Someone (me) wasn’t able to get her Katie Fisher Day cookies out in the mail until 3/19, and they just arrived today! I agree with my wonderful Grammy that we should have Katie Fisher Days more often.
PS The cookies were NOT delicious. I didn’t use enough sugar when I halved the recipe (like, I used half the sugar but I should have used slightly more than half the sugar). What you see here is the ‘Grandmother Effect’.
I baked some “miss milly” style cookies form a BBC good food web site recipe and gave them to friends at work.
Katie Fisher Day: Love from Veronica
This video absolutely blew our minds.
Watch Veronica as she walks all over her campus handing out cookies and spreading kindness in Katie’s memory.
Thanks, Veronica! Happy Katie Fisher Day to you too. See you next year.
I found out about Katie Fisher Day two days ago from Lucy P.’s FB page and then received cookies today in the mail from some lovely person or persons! I intend to celebrate Katie Fisher Day every year and remember Katie every time I walk to the Wu by finding her brick and then smiling with tears in my eyes. Thanks you to all of you who keep Katie’s memory alive and vibrant. JL
I’ve been thinking about Katie so much since I first saw this page. She is someone I looked up to so much when I was growing up. Today I made cookies for my roommates who I met about 6 months ago, and shared great memories of dancing and playing basketball with Katie when we were kids. Making cookies on Katie’s birthday is a tradition I will keep always. I think about her often, and am so happy that people still remember her with love & joy and that more people are continuing to learn about her today! She was truly one in a million. Love and miss you Katie!
I decided to send some cookies to my niece, since 3/12 is actually her birthday. She’s also going through a pretty rough time, as my brother and his wife are getting divorced, and they need to sell the house she grew up in. I’m hoping the cookies are a happy surprise during a time that seems like it’s piling up with a lot of bad surprises. Hopefully she’ll want to share with her brother and father (her abusive mother can have the opposite of cookies, whatever that is. Cow pies?). That chocolate chip pudding cookie recipe made 3 pans of cookies, so there’ll be some love spillover at my office.
I sent cake batter cookies to my friend’s family. She deployed to Kuwait a few months ago.
Anne Marie and David Fenn sent us these “Taste of sweet kindness cookies” in celebration of our sweet Irish girl.
