unusual christmas cookies

Louise | Sep 24, 2004 10:44 AM

Does anyone out there make Vanilla Sticks for Christmas?

I am an SF 'hound with Ohio family ties.

My Grandparents make mountains of cookies for Christmas--enough for several armies. Most are commonly recognized recipes, but VS I have never seen sold anywhere, have scoured bakeries and cookbooks and found exactly one printed recipe, in a dogeared pamphlet printed about 1939.

Has anyone seen, made, or eaten these? Note, they have only four ingredients, and cinnamon, flour, egg yolks, butter, chocolate/cocoa and lemon peel are not among them.

Many thanks.
