Brown Peroschki

Hi! I’m a grandma of 5 grandsons and 5 granddaughters. The oldest is in his second year at University of Saskatchewan and the youngest two in Grade 1. We have great get-togethers when they all come to our home in Hanley, Saskatchewan. Christmas is particularly special.

In preparation for Christmas I love baking, and Brown Peroschki are the first cookies I make. Here is the recipe. I hope you will try them and enjoy them as we do. Merry Christmas.

2 cups syrup
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup lard and 1 cup butter-soften
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp star anise
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 eggs
8 - 10 cups flour or whatever is needed
to make a soft dough

Chill overnight (easier to work if cold). Roll dough to 1/8” thickness. Cut with 3 inch round cutter. Put a dollop of tart jam, Not Jelly, (I use gooseberry jam) in center of cookie dough. Fold in half, pinch edge into arc. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes till done. When cool, ice with white icing. They are scrumptious!

Makes 10 - 13 dozen.

Other jam options: raspberry, damson plums.
