The cookie came from our Dutch colonists, but no one knows where this cookie got it's funny name from.
I am not sure where this recipie originally came from I think maybe the Gooseberry Patch series of books.
It's on a little 3x5 card and has no credits on it, just some picts of gingerbread men on the side.
