My grandmother has always been a very big part of my life. Especially when I was a little kid. My mother is a teacher and after she gave birth to me she had to go back to work and she didn’t have time to take care of me. Since that was the case my grandmother had to come over and take care of me. So I basically grew up with my grandma and I’ve always had a special bond with her. When I was a baby she’d make veggie soups for me. Then as I grew up it turned into cookies, cakes, and all that jazz.
One of my favorite things my grandma makes has always been her cookies. I mean how can you not love these they have the best texture, they fill you up, you can put basically anything you want in them.. My favorite things to add are walnuts and raisins. Sometimes no walnuts sometimes no raisins. And sometimes I like to add both in. They are amazing with almonds too. But not the roasted kind. The raw kind. I love raw almonds.
Some people call these rock cookies I believe. Probably because they look like pieces of rocks. I don’t know the actual name but my grandmother calls them torn cookies. Because to make them you need to tear out pieces from the dough to make them have this rock type shape that makes them special.
