"My mother and father taught me how to make cookies. I remember being in the kitchen with them and making the dough when I was just a little kid. It was like working with clay or Play-Doh. And the way the cookies smelled coming out of the oven! Butterific! They'd be hot off the press and just melt in your mouth. My parents started selling to coworkers and eventually turned it into a business. We have a bakery now at Airways and Ketchum called Makeda's Cookies and we all work there: my mother, father, brother, sister, grandmother, and me. The butter cookies are my specialty."
