As every time I make those cookies I get a bunch of people asking for the recipe, I’ve decided to put it up here so I won’t have to hand write it again and again 🙂
This recipe came from my grand mother’s and has been made in our family for decades. I don’t know where she took it but we make it (aunts, mom, myself..) as Xmas treats and when I do make them even if I double or triple the recipe it last for about 2 days…
Warning: if you use the help of a 3 yo, you might end up with :
-water in your dough (never ever, live it unattended!)
– dough on your fridge door due to vigourous mixing
-less dough than you planned as some gets eaten by unknown monster
Don’t tell me I didn’t warned you!
