Guess what! Raffi and I made some *real* Austrian cookies together on Sunday afternoon! I have no idea how to pronounce them, but they are delicious! She called her mom for the recipe, and then I went on a hunt for Hazelnuts. I'm not going to lie--Hazelnuts are not big around here. : ) I eventually tracked down one tiny bag at Festival. I picked up that bag and a whole bunch of almonds and hoped that they would be close enough. Don't you love the recipe Raffi wrote?!? I love her European handwriting. After much debate over turning decagrams into cups (which seemed to involve some high-level John math), Raffi worked her magic.
Hooray for giving Raffi a taste of home. Now, if I could just manage to make her farmer's bread (my first attempt was an epic fail!).
