Woman Keeps an 85-Year-Old Cookie as a Family Heirloom
Do you have a lucky memento or an object that has been passed down for generations in your family? Penny Rickhoff of Scottsdale has one, but it's rather odd. It's not the traditional piece of jewelry or photo album. It's a cookie. An 85-year-old cookie, to be exact!
85 years ago, Rickhoff's mother's first love gave her a cookie with his name on it for Valentine's Day, along with a card. Penny's mother loved it so much that she wanted to save the cookie as a keepsake. And 85 years later, the cookie still lives on! Sure, it's hard as a rock and looks a little worse for wear, but it's still obviously a cookie!
Penny now keeps the cookie in a small jewelry box and considers it her "lucky cookie."
