If I said “Ox Tongue” cookies, would you know what I’m talking about? Maybe “Cow Tongue” or “Spice Tongue” cookies? I feel like these all might be the secret passwords to a quiet PA Dutch baking club.
As it turns out, Ox Tongue Cookies are a sweet and spicy PA Dutch recipe with deep roots. I recently connected with my summer kitchen cooking friend, Terry Berger. Terry is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker by day and a scratch cook by night and on the weekends.
We first met this summer at the Kutztown Folk Festival’s Summer Kitchen, where he helped organize daily meals to educate festival attendees about traditional PA Dutch recipes. In this Ox Tongue Cookie episode we talked about PA Dutch and family winter and holiday baking traditions!
Quick note, Terry talks about a dough hook that he uses, instead of a stand mixer. He also mentioned the Lehman’s website to source this whisk, a Polish Dough Whisk. Check it out. I’ve seen a similar whisk offered by King Arthur Flour, too.
