Every year at the same time (mostly during my cookie baking marathon) I have this catchy tune in my mind. It’s called “In the christmas bakery” (“In der Weihnachtsbäckerei”) and it literally describes the chaos in my kitchen while baking cookies. But this song is not the only thing that is the only tradition kept during my baking marathon. I have a particular recipe for cookies that has to be made every year. Those of you who examined my blog more carefully might already have a clue. I am talking about my granny’s Florentine biscuits.
Every year I visited my granny during christmas season to bake those cookies. And while waiting for them to be baked, we played dice. And we truly had a lot of time to play ’cause my granny always produced double the amount of cookie dough. The final result, a huge mountain of Florentine biscuits, was then split between three families: my uncle, my grandparents and my parents.
These are childhood memories I will never forget. You surely have some of those, too.
Unfortunately, I now have to go without playing a game of dice, but my granny’s Florentine biscuits are still fun to make. The recipe is easy-peasy and ready in no time. You only have put the ingredients into a cooking pot and mix them. With lightning speed you have a cookie dough that could be eaten raw without hesitation. You only have to place little dollops of dough onto a baking tray. And with a little bit of heat you got your own batch of Florentine biscuits.
Isn’t that brilliant? Here are the ingredients, you will need for my granny’s Florentine biscuits:
Finally, I’ve got an advice for you: If you want to give away those cookies, you have to be quick. As soon as they are ready, they are gone. I even had to hide them otherwise there would be no cookies left to show you.
With this in mind,
Squirrel a few cookies away.
