Wednesday was a *snow day* here in Milwaukee.
While everyone was outside trying to dig out, I was deciding what to bake.
My first mission was to come up with a gluten-free red velvet cupcake recipe.
Check. (you will be getting it soon)
Next up was cookies. I couldn’t decide on one right away, so I grabbed a stack of books off the shelf, including the cookbook my Mamasita made me many moons ago.
She’s super crafty. And I don’t just mean she can use rubber cement and card stock. I mean craftalicious. Big time. And if you’re coming to our next GF Get Together, our big one year anniversary dinner, you might just see some of her other tricks.
Where was I? Oh, right, the cookbook.
Paging through, and look what I found!
These are my favorite kind of recipes for several reasons:
- From my grandma, in HER writing.
- Not many ingredients.
- Even fewer instructions. (many of you will love that part too!)
- NO flour. Nope. None. Nada.
Can you believe I haven’t made these before? That I’ve been keeping this secret family recipe from you?
Truth be told, I didn’t even remember this precious little recipe was in that book. But none of that matters now my friends, it is yours now.
I think it makes my mom happy to see her mom’s recipes on my site. And that, in turn, makes me happy. So many fun food related memories at my grandma and grandpa’s house. From helping in the garden to making homemade ice cream and strawberry shakes. Lefse for the holidays and “dunker” chocolate chip cookies. And I’ll never forget Grandpa’s five pounds of fudge.
What about you? Tell me about your food memories with your family and friends.
And then go make these cookies.
