Old recipes and Christmas


Michael Miller and NDSU Germans from Russia Libraries prints a recipe card to advertise their cookbooks and such at the ND Pride of Dakota Shows. Well, this year they decided to use my mother’s honey cookie recipe that came from her mother Emma Meidinger.

We had them every Christmas, frosted with white powdered sugar frosting and sprinkles. There were always homemade caramels wrapped in twisted wax paper and oranges. Since Grandmother had 46 grandchildren we each received a box of Cracker Jacks with a coin taped to it and later a dollar bill. Each was wrapped in ribbonless Christmas paper with no names. Once we reached a certain age, the gift became something crocheted… Grandma was quite the crocheter.

So I am proud to have her recipe on that handout and if you click on the above link HONEY COOKIES, you will be magically taken to my kitchen and introduced to Grandma Meidinger’s Honey Cookie recipe.

More Christmas coming…. gute essen!
