Family Recipes

It is Lent right now, and even though I am not religious, I still decided to try and curb one of my addiction at this time. I my case, it was sweets, and I have to admit, that first days were harder, than I imagined. I guess there was some addiction there, like I would have joked for the last couple of years.

I think this is why I went through the recipes, that I had collected. I realized that way too many of them were sweets. Not counting sweets, there was only one recipe, that I still wanted to try. Another thing, that I could get rid of. (This is always a time for celebration :) )

I also found some of the recipes, that I got from my two grandmothers. Since I might regret not having them in the future, I will write them down here. Even if they are sweets.

What I always assumed where my grandmother cookies (but then I realized, that she did not put chocolate in them):

Ingredients:

  • 200g of flour (polnozrnata pšenična moka)
  • 0,5 little spoon of baking soda (jedila soda)
  • 100g of butter
  • 75g of sugar (trsnega sladkorja)
  • 75g of chocolate
  • 1 egg
  • 1 little spoon of vanilla (vanilijev extrakt)

Maybe grandmother cookies (?):

  • 2 dl of water
  • 70 dag of butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 100g of flour
  • 3 eggs

Bake for 20 minutes at 200°C

Some chocolate cookie things that my other grandmother once got:

  • 3 eggs (whole)
  • 15 dag of sugar
  • 10 dag of butter
  • 32 dag of flour
  • a little of soda

  • walnuts, raisins, chocolate, (soncn? - maybe sunflower seeds? I can't read)

So I am putting it there, mostly so I make it easier to myself for throwing it away.
