Dietert Cookies Delivered!

My last column in the Kerrville Daily Times told a story of Rosalie Dietert who had one of the very first (if not the first) stoves in Kerrville.  Ms. Dietert was quite a cook and many of her most remembered recipes were baked desserts and cookies.  One of the recipes she passed down to her children (and to many in the Kerrville community) was for "Schnecken," a rolled dough pastry kind of like a cinnamon roll, but with sour cream in the batter.  I closed my column with this line: "Joe Herring Jr. is a Kerrville native who wouldn't mind a plate of schnecken, or "Dietert" cookies about now."

Well, Tina Woods, the executive director of the Dietert Center, showed the column to the Dietert Center's Chef Karen, who made up a batch, and Tina delivered them today.


Who knew history could be so tasty?  Thanks Chef Karen and Tina Woods!!!
