Strings Garden Tour and Hill Street Cookies

Today our little Steamboat cabin  was on a kitchen & garden tour  to raise funds for the local Summer Strings  Music Festival. It was an awesome day! Perfect weather and beautiful homes, gardens and kitchens! I baked my special Hill Street Hippy Cookies to share with all our visitors, and they were a hit! Here are photos from today’s tour and the recipe. There are many variations you can do with this recipe so let your creative juices flow. Feel good serving up this healthy yummy treat to your family and friends along with a nice cold glass of  hemp milk or warm tea. Thank you for joining us on today’s tour!

STORY: After dreaming for over 30 years to live in Steamboat Springs, my dream finally came true! Alas, my husband and I, thanks to our dear family friend Kathy, found us our dream home on Hill Street in downtown Steamboat! I couldn’t be happier! It truly rained blessings the day we found our little cabin on Butcher Knife Creek. That first summer, after friends left and I was alone, I stayed up baking. It was then that I created these cookies. Their name came when I had given some to a sweet young man who helped me buy my bike and he said, “Man, these are the best hippy cookies I have ever tasted! The name stuck! Enjoy!
