Strofulli

I remember them from my childhood. Every Christmas a plate of them sat tantalizingly on the hutch in the dining room - calling to me. I could never resist. Whenever I walked by,I would pluck one from the golden pile and pop it in my mouth. They were melt-in-your mouth good. Yummy!

I was reminiscing about them a few weeks ago, and Mom decided we would add them to the cookie baking list. We saved them for last. Today was the day.

It really is a "two-girl project." Mom dropped the little bits of dough into the hot oil, and I coated them with honey.







Lots of sprinkles, and they are done!



All that remained was to sample them. Mmmmm mmmmm good!

Christmas Blessings,
Linda

  5. Those look so yummy! I'm so happy for you that you could share this ritual with your mother.

    I cought up on your posts and have been deeply touched by them all. I enjoyed your stories, esp. Santa's visit. We need some light-heartedness too.

    The song of the week is a favorite too, although some congregations can butcher it without a strong songleaader. But it's their heartfelt singing that counts anyway.

    I so enjoy visiting here and always leave recharged. I'm about to head out for some last bit of Christmas shopping, but thought I'd stop by here to get 'blessed' first.

    Hope you have a blessed Christmas, friend.
