Aunty Rolling Pin here. I declare, some mighty good things are having their 100th birthday this year! You already know it’s the 100th birthday of the Mary Frances Books, but it is also the 100th birthday of America’s favorite cookie — the Oreo! I told Mary Frances she should have a tea party with her American Girl dolls and I’ll teach her a recipe that uses Oreos in a modern day way. I’ll show her how to make Oreo Truffles! They are so delicious and I know her dolls, Mary Marie, Angelina and Emily will love them! Mary Frances can make up the invitations and place cards. She’ll set the table nice and pretty and everyone will wear their party clothes. We’ll all sing Happy Birthday and it will be a grand afternoon!
