Family Recipe Friday - Grandma Weber’s Icebox Cookies
This is just what I hoped would happen. I had come to a dead end on finding Grandma Weber's (Tillie Kuhn Weber) recipes. There weren’t any of her cookbooks in anyone’s possession. Nor did I locate a 3x5 box of her handwritten cards with instructions for her grape jelly or hasenpfeffer or cookies……. (By the way, I just used Mom’s dictionary to spell hasenpfeffer. Page down to the last blog post if you are wondering.)
But, as I was saying last week, my sister, Marti came through. She found several of Grandma’s recipes that she (Marti) had typed into her own notebook many years ago. Yay!! Now I'm ready to post a second selection. These Icebox Cookies definitely are on my planning list for the next family gathering.
(This photo shows Grandma Weber with several of her grandchildren. My sister, Martha Niehaus, is the second girl from the right in the front of the photo. This photo also shows signs of our mother, Rose Weber Niehaus, recording family history. When you look closely you can see that she has written the names of each cousin on the front of the person. That’s not the best way to preserve, but it’s a special touch in this case. )
