Remembrance Cookies

 

  These cookies can be made on Hallows Eve. They can be shaped like people and the herb rosemary is added to the dough as a symbol of remembrance. Some of the cookies are eaten while telling stories or attributes of special ancestors, reminding us that we still have access to their strengths--or perhaps a predisposition to their weaknesses.
The rest of the cookies are left outside by a bonfire or by window next to a black  candle as an offering.
This can be a solemn ritual, but it need not be.

Ingredients for the cookies:
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter or margarine (softened)
1 egg
2 t. vanilla
1 t. almond extract
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cream of tartar
1 1/2 T. chopped fresh rosemary (substitute dry)

Heat oven 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, almond extract, and rosemary until creamy. In
a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar.Fold flour mixture into sugar mixture. Beat until dough forms
and refrigerate for three hours. Divide dough into halves. Roll out one portion to 3/16 of an inch on a floured surface.
Cut out with gingerbread women or men cutters and place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Repeat rolling and cutting with second
portion. Bake for 5-7 minutes.
