It has become tradition now. Christmas time rolls around, and the only cookie I truly crave is this one: Vanilkove rohlicky (Vanilla crescents). The ingredients are simple, but these remind me of home, no matter if I'm in Colorado, Chicago, or my sleepy hometown.
I've made these three years in a row now, and without realizing it, have at this point established my traditional Christmas cookie. Funny how that happens, right? Christmas couldn't go by without them.
Recipe here (I substitute gluten-free flour!).
