    Our family has made them traditionally for Christmas since 1959!

    My mom made the Chinese Chews that were rolled in the sugar when I was a kid. She made dozens of different cookies and would give trays of cookies to friends and neighbors. These were always one of the biggest hits!

    I have been making these since I was about 8 or 9 for every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used the recipe out of our local Panama City “Bay Leaves” cookbook published in 1975.

    The website for Hawthorne Inn in Concord, Mass says they are 100% Slavic. I have no idea, I’ve never heard of them before but are dying to try them!

    I have made Chinese Chews for about 40 years so it’s nice to see others who enjoy them and when the recipe originated. In my family they were made by my great Aunt Agnes and always at Christmas when I was growing up. I just finished making them to share with my family as I’ve done all these years. My recipe is the same as yours Elise. They are so yummy!
