Mel is looking for: (3 answers)
I have a recipe that we found from my grandmother for a German (we think) New Year Cookie that has 4 eggs, 1 cup water, 2 cups cream, 3 cups sugar, cardamon seed, anise seed, and "enough flour to make a right thickness" in it. No butter or leavening agent in it. I don't know what the cookie was called other than New Year cookie (on her hand-written note). The cookie dough was evidently placed on a long-handled hand-forged cookie press that made one cookie at a time that was placed in a fire to bake. The press has a design in it along with the date of my great-grandparents wedding (his initials and date on one side, hers on the other side). Does anyone know what the cookie was called and maybe have a little more on how to make and bake it? I have looked on-line for it but haven't found anything like it yet.
