TWD - Mrs Vogel's Scherben
Our TWD host this week is Teanna of Spork or Foon? She has chosen the intriguingly named Mrs Vogel's Scherben as our Dorie recipe for this week. Mrs Vogel was a real person who is the source of this recipe, and "scherben" (love that word!) is the German word for fragments - because this is what these cookies are - fragments of fried dough, dusted with cinnamon sugar and icing sugar.
The biscuits without the sugar dusting are very plain - you could almost dip them in salsa and it would be fine.
Although I loved the name of these biscuits, I didn't really like them that much - I found them to be very plain, even with the sugar. Mrs Vogel's son adores them, so it's just a personal thing.
If you'd like to try these, Teanna will have the recipe. To see what the other TWD bakers thought, go to the TWD blogroll.
