President’s Day Cookie Collaborative Project

Anne at Flour Box Bakery spear-headed a President’s Day cookie group project.  What a task!  That is A LOT of cookies!

I was assigned the United States’ 15th president, James Buchanan.  What do you know about him?  I didn’t know a thing!  Here are some quick facts:
