    Studentchef's Note:

    Gelt is Yiddish for coins, and are handed out to little children during Chanukkah. I found this particular recipe in the Montreal Gazette, which claimed to have found the recipe in Chrismakkah, the Merry Mish-Mash Holiday Cookbook.

      Wonderfully flavoursome and really easy to follow instructions. Just loved the ease and simplicity of making these, a major factor in my being happy to make these again! I used generous grindings of black pepper rather than cayenne pepper - zero tolerance of anything hot and spicy - and to add some extra flavour I added some sage and thyme to the rosemary, a blend I really like. Thank you for sharing this super recipe, Studentchef. Made for PRMR.

      Down South here we have a nice biscuit we call cheese straws. This reminded me of them with it's buttery, cheesy, melt in your mouth flavor. I added a little more cayenne pepper. This was soooo easy and I will use this again and again.....thank you!

      I'm not a big fan of hot/spicy, but a generous pinch of the cayenne pepper worked wonders with these cheesy little cookies, & we thoroughly enjoyed 'em! Definitely something I'd make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
