Hi!Everyone it was a cold winter's night just before Christmas, when my Nana (grandmother) was making fried cookies like she has always done in the past for Christmas,my brother and I would love to help!!! There was always alot of dough to make, a huge mountain of flour, then broken eggs in the middle.My grand mother said ow I forgot to take my pills, so she did and came bake to the huge bourd , she added yhe other ingrediants, and mixed the dough by hand, it was a really hard job, after mixing the right consistancy for the dough, she made us breakfast, and had a cup of coffee with royal lunch crackers, do you remember them???? The company went out of buisness, I think a few years ago!!! That's what she made her pork meatballs with,nothing taste the same!!!She got out her macaroni machine and feed the dough through it, just getting the right thickness, then she useto make strips of cookie dough, and made slits to form a crown appearence. I would help with the dough and my brother helped with the frying, we would make so many of the cookies together.Now my Nana was saying boy am I tired, and my grandmother never said that or let us know how tired she was, she said let me sit for awhile, so she sat down and feel asleep, me and my brother just looked at each other and said ok lets finish up, so we finished cooking the cookies and put powdered sugar on them and honey, Italian trudition,latter on that night we said Nana where you up all night, she started to laugh, and hugged us and said, I guess I was tired because instead of taking a water pill, she took a sleeping pill. My Nana passed away in 1985, but the memories will always be told to our grandchildren now!!! I love to cook today beacause her and my mom would sit us on their lap and let us help never yelling only praising our help, and my children and grandchildren love to help,and the memories will always live on. Thank You
