It’s good to be back! A family member was ill and I have been traveling a lot over the past few months, and even when I was able to make something, I wasn’t able to take photos of it and/or post it. I’ll get some photos of the scherben, a fried cookie, up later. Only I cheated and baked them instead, thanks to a suggestion by Caitlin, the Engineer Baker. And the computer that I use to upload photos is in use, so that will have to wait. We have a complicated computer set up around here ever since one of them blew up a couple years ago.
Basically, you make a dough, roll it out, cut it into strips, fry it, and sprinkle it with powdered sugar. I left out the frying part, and these little cookies taste like the ones I make with left over scraps of pie dough or puff pastry. They are best warm from the oven.
Thanks to Teanna of Spork or Foon? for picking Mrs. Vogel’s Scherben, on pages 157-159. It was delicious, and ranks as one of my all-time Dorie favorites!
