I’m always fascinated by old cookbooks and the sometimes marvelous, sometimes outlandish recipes they hold, so Four Pounds Flour, a blog that attempts and updates historic recipes, is right up my alley. Check out this modernization of one of the earliest Christmas Cookie recipes (or should I say Cookey?)!

  • cisco

    I fimply love thif refipe! No one apprefiatef pearl afh any more. My favorite holiday cookeief ever!

    So, we’d have to make the cookies in June, in order to have them ready for the midwinter holidays? I wonder how I could hide them from the Horde of Locusts–AKA my family–that long? Still, I do love old recipes, and may try this one in June! (Or make them now for the summer solstice! Now is definitely the time to be warming up the kitchen with baking.)
