The first heirloom recipe for 2016 is my great-grandmother’s Bread Crumb Cookies. I found this recipe when I blessed to see part of her recipe collection. The majority of the collection was in German, but there were several recipes that I was able to try. This is one of the most unusual & one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them!
2 cup bread crumbs (Trader Joe’s has a non-dairy bread crumb)
1 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)
2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cloves
1 cup butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
Cream sugar and butter until well mixed; add in egg & vanilla; mix well & set aside. Combine bread crumbs, cloves, baking powder, salt & flour. Combine wet with dry; mix well & add in raisins. Drop in greased pans with teaspoon and bake.
Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until golden around edges.
