This is the recipe of Anna Bosnjak, cherished neighbor and mother of four wonderful daughters. It's a traditional Christmas Cookie brought to America by Croatian and Serbian Immigrants. Unfortunately it requires a special jazzbow cookie mold that is prized by their owners and handed down from generation to generation. I believe you could use any 1/2 inch deep mold if needed.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together Butter and Sugar. Mix in the other ingredients until a tender dough is formed.
  2. Coat the cookie mold with granulated sugar (this helps release dough from the mold). Tap out the cookie and place on a cookie sheet. If dough is too soft, chill it for about 30 minutes then try to mold these again.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

Perfect! This is my grandmother's recipe, and it's been lost from the family files. She came from Croatia when it was still Austro-Hungary. We have the mold, but not the recipe. Now if only I might print it!
