2. What is it about this cookie that you love?

This cookies are really like snowflakes, they melted in your mouth. And they are easy and quick to make!

3. Please share a story or memory to go along with the cookie.

From the sixth to the tenth grade, I attended a girls school.

This school was still run by nuns at that time and we got besides the normal lessons also household lessons. We had to clean the kitchen, iron the nuns’ handkerchiefs to a perfect square and had regular baking and cooking classes.

That was the most fun for me back then. Our teacher’s name was ‘Sister Magdalena’, but her nickname since student generations was’ Schnüff’ -‘Sniff ‘. Not without reason, because she smelled all our mistakes immediately and that were many. Especially when something started to burn, when something disappeared from the pantry, when salt was mixed instead of sugar, when the amount of biscuit had shrunk because the burnt were secretly hidden, or because we could not wait to taste it. She came immediately behind it. So we were always a little bit scared of her, even though she always scolded a little with us, and then it was forgotten again.

We always wondered how she came after our misdeeds, but today I would say it was her experience with us students.

I still have all the recipes we had to write down neatly one of them are the Snowflakes.
