I ran across this wonderful blog: Gram’s Recipe Box
I read one of the blog posts about a handwritten book of family recipes which were all in German. The author of the blog was asking for help translating the recipes. My daughter, in her first year at university, is minoring in German. I sent her the link to the blog and asked if she might be able to help with this woman’s project. Fortunately my daughter is an excellent baker (and a big fan of the British Baking Show) and is also a thoughtful, generous human being.
The recipe for the cookies pictured above is here.
Another version from Canada is here.
There are some new pages posted on the blog.
Check out the rest of the recipes there if you are into vintage cooking at all. Many good-looking ideas might inspire a blast to the past.
The next few pages were posted and translated by my daughter. You can find her translation in the comments of this blog post.
