How did I get this recipe?

The moment I discovered this recipe is a cherished memory that I hold close to my heart. It was a sunny afternoon in the late summer of 1965, and I was visiting my dear friend Alice in her cozy little kitchen. Alice was known in our small town for her delicious baked goods, and I always looked forward to our baking sessions together.

On this particular day, as we sat sipping tea and chatting about our families, Alice suddenly pulled out a worn, stained recipe card from a drawer and handed it to me with a mischievous smile. "I have a special treat for you today, my dear," she said. "These Cherry Cordial Cookies are a family recipe that has been passed down for generations. I think you'll love them."

I eagerly scanned the ingredients list and instructions, my mouth watering at the thought of the sweet and tangy cherry filling nestled inside a buttery cookie shell. As Alice guided me through the steps, I was amazed at how simple and straightforward the recipe was. It was clear that this was a labor of love, meant to be shared with family and friends.

After the cookies came out of the oven, golden and fragrant, I took my first bite and was transported to a world of flavors and memories. The tartness of the cherries balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the cookie dough, creating a harmonious taste that lingered on my tongue. I knew then and there that this recipe would become a staple in my own kitchen.

Over the years, I have made these Cherry Cordial Cookies countless times, each batch turning out just as delicious as the last. I have shared them with friends, neighbors, and even strangers who have become fast friends after tasting just one bite. The recipe has become a part of my culinary identity, a symbol of the love and care that I put into every dish I create.

As I reflect on that fateful day in Alice's kitchen, I am filled with gratitude for the gift of this recipe. It has brought me joy and comfort in times of celebration and sorrow, a reminder of the connections we forge through food and shared experiences. I am grateful for the wisdom and generosity of my dear friend Alice, who passed down this recipe to me with love and trust.

And so, as I pass on this recipe to you, my dear grandchild, I hope that you will carry on the tradition of baking these Cherry Cordial Cookies with pride and joy. May they bring you as much happiness and fulfillment as they have brought me, and may you always remember the power of a shared recipe to create lasting memories and connections.
