Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
For years at DCD, before the Holiday Break, DCD colleagues used to have a "Cookie Swap." My favorite treats were the Fudgie Scotch Squares that Mimi used to bring. Mimi loved my Congo Bars. When the "Cookie Swap" lost it novelty, and we no longer baked and exchanged cookies, Mimi baked a batch of her yummy Fudgie Scotch Squares for my family, and I baked a batch of Congo Bars for Mimi's family!
