To celebrate Saint Gianna this week, I'm going to focus on her life--being a mom and a pediatrician, working with kids and families, living her faith even when it was difficult. Here is a link to a bunch of saint coloring pages. Saint Gianna is halfway down the page.
I've read online that a lot of people serve cannoli to celebrate her feast day since she's Italian. Instead of buying cannoli (or making them--ouch!) I made cute and delicious Lacy Oatmeal Cookies, rolled them into a tube, and filled them with whipped cream. The cookies were relatively easy to make. I did add another 1/2 cup of flour to the recipe since the first batch through the oven were too thin to be practical. I also used Rich Whip which is dairy free. The fake whipped cream tasted surprisingly delicious.
|Stuck to the pan. I couldn't form fast enough.|
|Cooling while forming delightfully.|
|To finish these, I sprinkled the top with Cinnamon. By that time, I had already eaten more than my fill of crumbs and "whipped cream." Scott said that the cinnamon really made them delicious.|
Linking to these and these linky parties!
