Delicious Cookie Recipe for Canada Day

Monday, June 24th, 2013


I found this recipe a few years ago and it has become a summer staple.  

This cookie recipe uses just 1/4 cup of butter so they fit a lighter palette which is perfect for warmer weather (and bathing suit season!).  

These cookies also happen to be red and white which makes them perfect for a Canada Day celebration!

Oakville celebrated Canada Day in beautiful Bronte Village By the Lake. It was the party of the summer as crowds, in excess of 50,000 visitors, flooded to Bronte to share in the excitement. “Proud to be Canadian” and delighted with the festivities, organized by the 200 merchants of the Bronte Village Business Association (Bronte BIA) and the generous sponsors of Oakville’s Canada Day, the visitors made Oakville’s Annual Canada Day a huge success!

One of the premier Canada Day celebrations in Ontario and within our country, Oakville’s Canada Day in Bronte Village By the Lake is famous for its impressive Fireworks display, set off from a barge at the mouth of Bronte Creek on the shores of Lake Ontario. Both the day and the weather were perfect. The night was still and clear, with a full moon flooding its light over Lake Ontario and the evening festivities. Energy was high and the crowds were full of anticipation in Bronte’s Heritage Waterfront Park. As the band on the main stage played O’Canada followed by a wide range of crowd favorites, the skies lit up and the show began! Happy Birthday Canada!
