We eat these every year. The dough is a thick batter, thicker than pancake batter, thinner than nut bread. I dip the spoon into the hot fat in between each "cookie". It keeps the spoon cleaner. Sometimes I make a thin powdered sugar glaze and drizzle over the warm cookies. they make very interesting shapes, and discussing them is half the fun.
I'be been married 34 years to a Mennonite, so I Make new Year's Cookies almost every year for NYD. Decided to try this recipe this year. DH says they are the best yet, even better than his mother used to name, and that's quite a compliment coming from him. Followed the recipe to the letter, and will keep this one for years to come!
