Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

Anne (with an 'e') is a skinny orphan girl with fiery red hair & loads of imagination who arrives at Green Gables from an orphanage to be adopted by middle aged siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. Though they were expecting a boy, they decide to keep her with some reservations and soon fell in love with her quirkiness.

Whats your name? - if you ask Anne; She would reply - "Will you please call me Cordelia? please as the name sounds so romantic". and thats how our Anne is.

L. M. Montgomery is the author of this month's book 'Anne of Green Gables' who is known for a writing style involving lovely prosy descriptions especially about the beauty of nature at Green Gabless and Anne's daydreams. Her characters, are so unique in themselves and lovable (Anne, Marilla, Mathew, Mr. & Mrs. Allan, Miss Stacy, Diana, Mrs.Lynde etc) that one instantly fall in love with them.

Anne is very fond of her little 'tea parties' and am sure she would love to have the cookies I made for her and for her friends. :)
