Creator Notes

That is a cookie my grandmother made every Christmas (no, now now not the vegan version I’ve re-created). I fabricate now now not appreciate any thought where the recipe originated–nevertheless a minute bit be taught unearthed that it was called the Bachelor Button since it was acknowledged to appreciate been made by “spinsters making an try to attract bachelors”. (My grandmother was widowed at a moderately younger age.) I’d now now not appreciate to speculate too a long way on her cause for making them yearly. . . nevertheless serene. I name this my vintage Christmas cookie since it is so worn and since it has such private that suggests to me. I figured out this tucked away in my mother’s recipe card box and when I saw my grandmother’s handwriting and title: Bachelor Buttons I was contented! Essentially among the finest phase of the cookie for me was continuously the maraschino cherry (my grandmother would preserve these on hand for her cocktails–nevertheless when they regarded on a cookie–I stuck around for additonal snacking when she baked her “Buttons”!). I add tumeric to the cookie to present it about a of the yellow coloration the egg yolk provided. The cookie has a semi-crunchy outer layer and a chewy internal layer. I recall this being more dense when she made it–nevertheless very staunch–my revised version holds up better I reflect–staying moist and definitely having less calories and chubby. —VeganThyme
