We made it through Christmas! It's such a busy time of year for everyone and I so appreciate having some time to spend with my family. My sister, Carla, came over one afternoon last week and we carried on the long family tradition of making Bratzli. Now many of you readers, if not all, have most likely never heard of these Swiss cookies. So here's a quick introduction to them.
Next, you roll all that dough into buttery little balls about the size of a quarter. You do this until you have a sea of little dough balls lined up and waiting.
And then, well then, you get to put them in the hot Bratzli iron 4 at a time. Close the lid, watch the butter run out, open the lid, and there they are! Hopefully, golden brown. Although we (as in I) kept getting distracted so we ended up with a lot of darkys. oops! (My sister and I actually prefer the darker ones).
