Nan would have been 100 today!

My grandmother (we called her Nan) was born October 4th, 1906. She liked to cook German meals for us,
like Hasenpfeffer and Cow's Tongue with Raisin Gravy.
I always hated to see that cow tongue in the refrigerator.
But, in honor of one of her favorite meals, I am preparing a different version of Nan's cow tongue:

I found this recipe here for Cow Tongue Cookies

  • 2 c. sugar
  • 4 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 c. Crisco
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 c. molasses
  • 4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
Mix Crisco and sugar. Add eggs and molasses. Mix dry ingredients and add to above. Shape into balls and then roll like a finger. Roll in sugar and bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes 5 dozen.
