TWD - Mrs Vogel's Scherben
This week’s TWD recipe is Mrs Vogel’s Scherben and was chosen by Teanna of Spork or Foon. I have to confess, looking through the whole Baking from my Home to Yours book, this recipe is probably the last recipe I would pick to make – mainly because the cookies are deep fried. And, in fact, I was very close to not making these until I read that others had brushed the dough with oil and baked in a hot oven. I decided to do that too.
I halved the recipe to make just enough scherben to taste. They are almost like strips of unsweetened shortcrust pastry, dusted with cinnamon sugar and icing sugar at the end. My husband and I ate one each, but I threw the rest out as they are the kind of thing that even though you don’t really like them, they are strangely compelling to eat. I wont be making these again, but am still happy that I didn’t decide to completely give them a miss.
See what the other TWDers thought here.
