I am from a Mennonite family and this is the recipe that my Mom made and my Grandmother made and my Greatgrandmother made and my GreatGreatGrandmother made back in Germany. In our family if you don't make New Years cookies it is not the new year. Thanks for sharing the recipe. We generally serve it with ham and pickles. But we NEVER put powdered sugar on them.
Awesome ! Something tells me you added to the directions. The Menno Treasury has great recipes, but is never very clear with their explanations. Good job.
