Yiddish Lesson #2

Grandma Lil's recipe card which I recently found marking a page in a favorite book.

Grandma Lil used to send me double batches of kumisch broit in college.  She wrapped the pieces in wax paper and packaged them in shirt boxes from Brandeis.  She worried about the kumisch broit getting farschimmelt.  But my friends and I always ate it long before that could ever happen.


  1. Mandelbrot--lecker, lecker. (is "lecker" Yiddish, too? So many cognates between German and it's medieval relation). I shall steal the recipe and swear to you that the cookies will not get "verschimmelt" in my house, either.
