Thanks so much to everyone who jumped on board my new Kickstarter project the other week. I hugely appreciate you, and I’m thrilled to report that my cookbook memoir COOKING WILL BREAK YOUR HEART has a super fun new stretch goal. If we hit 24K, I’ll send at least two professionally printed 3″x5″ index-style recipe cards to every backer who choses a physical reward! Check out the work-in-progress sample design above!
So yes, that means if you pick any physical book reward or even the stickers reward, you’ll also get at least two retro-style recipe cards if we hit that 24K stretch goal! Please do check it out and consider backing today!
The cards are inspired by my mom’s old hand-typed recipe cards, and if you have an old school index recipe card box like my mom did, they’ll fit perfectly!
Speaking of my mom’s recipe box, I finally made her thumb print jelly cookies. On her recipe card, they’re called “Linsenterchen,” which… isn’t a word! Not even in German!
But after talking with family, we figured out that this is just “Linzertörtchen,” or Linzer tarts, with a few misspellings and typos passed down over a couple of generations. Here’s what my batch looked like.
Absolutely delicious, with a great nutty flavor to the dough. The recipe calls for hazelnut, but I used pecans, and they were great. Huge burst of nostalgia and memory with every bite.
For this recipe and so much more, please do check out COOKING WILL BREAK YOUR HEART! We’re down to the last week! Dontcha dare miss it!
