I love almond cookies! My grandmother used to make spritz cookies by 15-20 tin cans at a time, whenever we'd come to visit. The flavor (s) stuck with me and I found the almond cookie. I had no idea of the origen or of meaning behind them.
I often wonder whether people practice the heritage of foods or if it's something that makes wonderful conversation at the dinner table or get togethers?
My family has Polish/Native American roots and I can't tell you how much more it adds to the making, reading a little history on what it is we're having for dinner
It's a bit like living, being there.
