Very simple, very old recipe from my 99 year old German MIL. Delicate. i'm trying to think of how I could flavor this a bit--perhaps just a hint of mace? Or maybe I shouldn't mess with something simple and delectable.

Though this isn't nearly the same recipe as I make (a cake-y buttermilk cookie), our recipe notes say we can use vanilla (like Grandma) or nutmeg (like her friend Bernice), and I've been toying with the idea of using ground ginger instead. I may try these next time I don't have buttermilk on hand.

I made these as the recipe was written and it was extremely good. Next time I will try them with Mixed Spice added. They are delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
