My Bushia was a marvelous cook…of basic foods. And, hey, let’s face it, we consume mostly basic foods, right? As a mother of 13 children there wasn’t much time for fluff, but there was no shortage of flavor! A very Old World, traditional little lady. Now my Grandma Pearl…she was cheeky and modern. Her foods always reflected the latest trends, and she too was a marvelous cook…just different.
Today, I want to share a Christmas cookie Bushia always made. Come to think of it, it was probably the only Christmas cookie she made. The cookie was like Bushia herself…plain on the outside, but a treasure trove of richness inside! (If you’d like to hear a little more about how my heritage and grandmothers affect our holiday celebration, check out my other blog, One Generation To Another this week and read “Polish for a Day“.)
(If these are not available at your local stores, you can use chocolate chips or pieces of chocolate bars inside the cookie.)
