You tease! Good thing I have my own recipe (although I've never made them on my own!) I got a bag from Martha and I've hidden them on top of the fridge so no one else will find them (especially the kids!)

And WHY haven't you adopted me yet?

Thank you for stopping by! I will have to keep coming back to see you, I guess, if I'm ever going to get the directions for these Peppernuts. :)

...really 6 to 7 pounds of flour? And I didn't know they made Postum anymore?

Psych! My Mom's Aunt and her family make some traditional Christmas cookies too. The recipe is from my Great-Grandma who has been gone since the 40's. I can't prounce or type the word properly but the cookies are Swiss and it sounds like fosk-nosk-hle-a-hlese. I'd make them but you can't find a recipe for something you can't spell.
