Cinco de Mayo Sombrero Cookies Recipe

    Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and, for those of you who don't know the history behind this day, it commemorates the Mexican Army's victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  I actually know facts like these from the years that I taught middle school Social Studies and planned multicultural lessons for my students.    The Battle of Puebla is significant because it is the classic story of the underdog defying all the odds to come out ahead.  In this case, Mexicans were greatly outnumbered by the French who had not been defeated for almost 50 years.  It's a wonderful story that I love telling to my Mexican students to instill pride in their heritage.  This year, I thought I would also create some delicious treats to give out to my students as we discuss the day's historical significance.Cinco de Mayo Sombrero Cookies RecipeIngredients:12 Pillsbury Ready To Bake Sugar Cookies (or can use store bought) … [Read more...]
