My mother had two recipes, one to make with us kids, involving cookie cutters and lots of hundreds and thousands, the other a lovely tasting but rather weird looking (somewhat like the sole of a shoe) biscuit, made after an old family recipe.
Amazingly we have already managed to make my son's favourite cookies and once my daugthter's social diary offers a slot there will be more baking!!
Here are some lovely pictures from Fraeulein Klein's blog with some of our favourites, some of them with a new twist. Let me know if you like a translation ;-)
