I grew up in a neighborhood on the east side of Cleveland known as the Kinsman area. A diverse ethnic neighborhood 60 years ago — Italians, African-Americans, Jews — many had fled Europe after World War II and had corner stores, delis and bakeries.

Jan Hagel Cookies | The Columbus Dispatch

I have baked these cookies every Christmas for at least 50 years. I clipped the recipe from The Dispatch at least that many years ago. It's such an easy recipe, and was a favorite of my late husband.
