2. What is it about this recipe that you love?
I love this recipe because it holds special memories, it’s really easy to make, and it tastes delicious! You’ll see in parentheses that it can be made dairy-free as well, which my son loved!
3. How did you learn to make this cookie?
I learned to make the recipe from my mother who learned it from her mother. Each year, I’ll pass on the special recipe to my own children, and the memories will continue to grow.
4. Please share a story or memory to go along with the cookie.
This is a very special family recipe from my Nanny’s collection of holiday recipes. She made it every Christmas when my mom was a little girl. My mom continued the tradition by making it with my sister and I every Christmas when we were young. I remember sneaking lots of bites when no one was looking! Even now, the tradition continues. When we get together at Christmas, one of us (my mom, sister, or I) usually makes the special fudge for our annual ornament exchange party. And just a few years ago, I began to make it for my own family (easily making it dairy free by using almond milk instead of evaporated milk when my son’s diet changed). Besides holding special memories, this fudge is absolutely delicious. It will melt in your mouth and make you want more…and more…and more! My mouth is watering just writing about it!
