Simply tell us about your “Desert Island” Christmas cookie in the comments field below.
And while we’re at it, can someone identify the cookie my paternal grandmother (of German descent) used to make? She dipped a flower-shaped, cast-iron mold first into batter, then into hot fat. What emerged was a light, crisp cookie that she sprinkled with confectioner’s sugar. I’d ask her for the recipe now, but I don’t possess a reliable Ouija board.
If you have friends or family members who are into baking, perhaps you can send them this way. I’m looking forward to reading about…and quite possibly baking…some of the cookies you describe.
Here’s one to get us started: Mildred Gleason’s Brown Sugar Cookies (submitted by reader Brenda). I made these cookies last year…they are heavenly.
