Is This Your Grandmother’s Recipe?
I’m sure we all feel that our grandmothers are the best cooks and bakers the world has ever seen. There is something magical about their cooking, isn’t there? They hardly ever use any special ingredients, just the very everyday stuff you can always find in your pantry. Yet, they come up with the most amazing dishes, cakes and treats you could ever think of.
My grandma was just like that. She lived to be 97 and I know she saw some hard times, too, so that must have been one of the reasons why she learned to be very creative with her recipes. This linzer cookie recipe from Baking Yummies instantly reminded me of her. She used to make cookies very similar to these, and the whole family loved them.
Six ingredients is all you need to make these and chances are, you probably already have these at hand. Some people consider these “holiday cookies” and I have to admit, I always make these during the holidays. However, these are so delicious they deserve to be enjoyed year ’round!
