Last winter, my neighbor Anne came running through my garage door with a bag full of ingredients. She didn’t stop to knock on the front door, for it was far too cold to be waiting outside, but instead let herself in through the garage. As she got to my kitchen counter, she unloaded all of her things and declared we would be making an old family recipe to bring a little sunshine to the gloomy day we had been experiencing.
Anne loves to makes these every winter. Ever since I moved into this neighborhood, she makes these in the middle of January when the cold is the most bitter. After that, she splits the batch into little baskets and goes around the neighborhood handing them out to every home.
She has become the ray of happiness in everyone’s dreary winter with these delicious, fruity treats. It is now expected by the whole neighborhood every year.
