    No Bake Horse Cookie Recipe

     

    Why Horse Cookies?  Because they can be used for all types of fun horse events.  While my mind tends to think of the Triple Crown Races: The Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes, these adorable no bake horse cookies are perfect for any horse themed party.

    Or just horsing around…. (I crack myself up).

    A horse walks into a bar… the bartender asks “why the long face?”

    I have such fond memories of Preakness. Well, mostly. My first experience was freshman year of collage in the infield. A space so large, I didn’t even quit realize we were in the middle of the chaos.

    I have pictured from this, but that was so long ago that they were taken on film and I only have hard copies!

    As I got older, my experience at Pimlico became more refined. First the bleachers, then the Corporate village and finally VIP. And if we weren’t hanging at the races, we were attending a Preakness party, ascot Derby hat and all.

    The official Kentucky Derby drink is the mint julep.

    Preakness is a Black-Eyed Susan and the Belmont Stakes is a Belmont Breeze (a blend of bourbon, whiskey, sherry, lemon juice, orange juice, pimento bitters, fresh mint and orange zest).

    Beautiful Kentucky derby hats and attire. Why is there not official food?
