G. Grandma Peters Gooseberry Cookies

2 eggs

1 cup milk

1 cup cream

1 1/2 TBSP baking powder

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled

1/2 tsp salt


1. Mix eggs, milk, cream, and melted butter together.

2.Add sugar, baking powder, and salt.

3. Add flour until it forms a dough with the consistency of ral kukin (Rollkuchen dough) (Mennonite Fritters). So that you can roll it out and cut it into little squares.

4. Knead the dough into a ball and place dough in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours. Because the dough is rich, its very easy to work with. No sticking problems.

5. Roll out the dough to 1/8 to 1/4" thickness. Cut into little squares and the add 3-4 gooseberries to each cookie and sprinkle with 1 tsp sugar on top of the berries before tucking the corners up. (Lorraine: I might like a add a little cinnamon with the sugar.I am going to try this recipe this weekend)

6. I a large pot add 2" of canola oil.  When the fat has little bubbles coming to the surface, it is likely hot enough, but put in a small piece of dough to test it. It should start to bubble around the dough quickly and rise to the surface. Deep fry until golden brown.
Put the fried gooseberry cookie on paper towels to cool.

This recipe would work for saskatoon berries, I think.
