BOONSBORO - A granddaughter's wedding day is reason enough to bake a few cookies for the reception, right?
Well Elfleta Reeder baked a few cookies alright - the 85-year-old baked two or three batches (50 cookies each) every day in the weeks before the June 28 wedding of Ashley Reeder and William "Harrison" DeStefano.
"We started about the first of June," Elfleta said.
The cookies were placed in cans layered with waxed paper and frozen at the home of the bride's mother, Cindy Reeder.
The final tally, according to Cindy Reeder, was 900 cookies.
"I make chocolate chip and snickerdoodles," Elfleta said. "Everyone likes my cookies."
Elfleta said she remembers her mother baking breads and pies when she was a child. "I love to bake," she said, noting her favorite is cookies.
