Reports from DNA sites show the countries of our ancestry. Some of the DNA amounts are as little as 0.02%, but I decided to explore them all, and what better way at Christmas, than with small batches of cookies!
Note: This is an excellent recipe for a well-prepared shortbread mold
Finnish Cardamom Cookies
Note: These have a great taste of cardamom
Swedish Kolakakor (Salted Caramel Cookies)
Note: I used a pizza wheel to cut these into diamonds. Totally addictive cookies!
Note: Tiny little cookies that have a little kick of pepper as a finishing note
Kichlach (Yiddish for cookies)
Note: These are eggy and plain – next time Chocolate Rugelach (a riff on a Zoë Bakes recipe)
Note: The icing makes these look snow covered
Mincemeat Pinwheels (British)
Note: Not sure about mincemeat? These puff pastry-based cookies are a different, lighter taste of mincemeat
Irish Lace Cookies
Note: Some rolled, some not, some filled, some plain – all of them yummy!
