How did I get this recipe?

The first time I saw this recipe, I was filled with a sense of excitement. I had always loved baking, and the thought of trying out a new recipe for filled cookies was thrilling. It was a recipe that had been passed down to me by my dear friend, Mrs. Jenkins, who had learned it from her own grandmother many years ago.

Mrs. Jenkins had invited me over for tea one afternoon, and as we sat sipping our Earl Grey, she suddenly got up and disappeared into the kitchen. I could hear her rummaging through her recipe box, and when she came back, she had a worn piece of paper in her hand.

"Here, my dear," she said, handing me the recipe. "These filled cookies are a family favorite. I thought you might enjoy making them yourself."

I eagerly took the recipe from her and studied it closely. The ingredients were simple enough - flour, sugar, butter, and a few others - but it was the filling that intrigued me. A mixture of chopped nuts, honey, and cinnamon, it sounded absolutely delicious.

Mrs. Jenkins must have seen the look of excitement on my face, because she smiled and said, "I'll show you how to make them. It's really quite easy once you get the hang of it."

And so, we spent the afternoon baking together. Mrs. Jenkins patiently guided me through each step of the recipe, showing me how to mix the dough just right and how to shape the cookies so that they would hold the filling inside. By the time we were done, the kitchen was filled with the warm, sweet scent of freshly baked cookies.

As we sat down to enjoy our creation, Mrs. Jenkins told me stories of her own grandmother, who had been an expert baker in her own right. She had passed down the recipe for these filled cookies to Mrs. Jenkins, who, in turn, had now passed it down to me.

I was filled with a sense of pride as I bit into one of the cookies. The outer shell was crisp and buttery, while the filling was sweet and nutty. It was a perfect combination of flavors and textures, and I knew that this recipe would become a favorite in my own family as well.

Over the years, I have made these filled cookies many times. I have tweaked the recipe here and there, adding my own personal touch to it. Sometimes I use almonds instead of walnuts, or I drizzle a bit of chocolate on top for an extra bit of decadence.

But no matter how I choose to make them, these filled cookies will always remind me of that afternoon spent baking with Mrs. Jenkins. They are a link to the past, a connection to the generations of women who came before me and who shared their love of baking with me.

And so, as I pass this recipe on to you, my dear grandchild, I hope that you will enjoy making these filled cookies as much as I have. May they bring you joy and comfort, and may they remind you of the love that has been passed down through our family for generations.
