Heirloom ~ Bread Crumb Cookies

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

2 egg

3 cups flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

pinch salt


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.
