spiral cookies - WHB #264

I have a very very good news!
it is my pleasure to show you the work my oldest son has done.
he works for a German Photovoltaic company and yesterday they finished a big job.
putting photovoltaic panels in a roundabout in a village here nearby.
it has been a 2 year long job, not the actual mans work but all the bureaucratic work behind.
I'm so proud of Erik and all his team of colleagues!
I do hope this is the first step to get more people in Italy to understand the importance
of alternative energy!

here is a photo of the roundabout 4 days ago almost ready. the photo was taken by my husband from a helicopter.

Spiral Cookies

chiocciole - spirals

this recipe comes from Iris, she made this cookies every year.
we had some difficulties finding the recipe, not knowing exactly very to look.
it was rather painful reading here notebooks, but with Manfred's help in the end we found the right recipe.
usually she prepared everything one day and then the kids made cookies with the ready dough the next day.
so, also this year the tradition went on.
