These cookies are delicious, they have a burnt caramel flavor from the molasses. And they have a unique history
I have made many versions of soda bread before, but this one is the best. It’s moist on the inside and crusty on the outside and I love the raisins and caraway seeds in it.
So simple to make. The “cookies” are a traditional favorite in our family, everyone loves them. Instead of making cookies you can just scoop some into a bowl and eat it hot, it’s really just breakfast cereal. The Greeks call this halva, not to be confused with the sweet sesame type you can buy in stores.
One of my favorite times in my life was visiting Paris with Jacob and buying crepes from a vendor and eating them as we walked on the street. They were folded as illustrated here so the jam or filling would not spill out as you ate them.
