When my cousin Peggy passed away a couple years ago, her memorial service was filled with people talking about her joie de vivre — how, even in her old age, she was a youthful spirit. That certainly came across in her trademark recipe, a cookie pie that was a hallmark of birthdays, holiday parties, and any other special (and even not-so-special) events she showed up at — and even now, when I think of it, I think of her.
