With a Civil War cookie cutter?
;)

And further, would I be able to dunk 'em in a cup of Joe?
You'll need your rifle butt to beat the beans into powder, after you roast them of course over your campfire. Be sure to let the grounds settle to the bottom of the tin cup and skim off the floaters at the top - then you're ready to start dunkin'!

You know, most people don't realize store-bought nutmeg isn't really nutmeg - more like the shell! REAL nutmeg is wonderful.

Old Rawhide was second only to Jubal Early as a Lost Causer and then it was neck n neck! I don't think even a mule shaped ginger cookie could sweeten him up...

DH Hill, jr. was even more important in lost cause mythology than was his father. Junior made sure the lost cause ideology made into school books in North Carolina and was very influential at NC State university.
