This refreshing soup originates from Spain and is served ice cold. The base of the soup is made with fresh tomatoes, cucumber and peppers. For a smoother soup, puree more than half of the vegetables. If you prefer it chunky - don't puree them at all. It's even better if you can leave this soup overnight to allow the flavors to develop.
Soft at first, these cookies harden into 'dunkers' after about 3 weeks. (Yes, they keep a long time!) They need a mold for the traditional Pennsylvania Dutch cookie, but I bet that they can be made by simply cutting them out. You can substitute other flavorings for anise - lemon and almond are good.
