"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

This recipe has been used in our family since my Grandmother was married in the late 1800. Every year it is different, even though the ingredients are the same. It has something to do with the "moon" I'm sure!!!! (U can eat the broken cookies as U work)
