Homemade Cookies Day

Tonight I'll be attending Candace's Octoberfest party.  She said to bring something German.  I just finished reading a Joanna Fluke book where  Hannah solves another murder while baking throughout.  Her recipe for cookies made with sauerkraut sounds like the perfect post for today's blog  and contribution for tonight's party. 

1 stick butter                                 1 1/2 c sugar
                    2 eggs, beaten   
1 tsp vanilla extract         1/2 cup cocoa powder    
                                                                         1/2 tsp. baking soda     
                                                      1/2 cup buttermilk      2 1/2 packed cups flour              
                                                      1 cup sauerkraut (drained, rinsed, dried and chopped)

Mix together first two ingredients, add eggs, then mix in next 3 ingredients.  Add milk and flour until well incorporated.  Mix in sauerkraut.  Drop 12 heaping teaspoonfuls on greased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  When cool frost with chocolate frosting or dust with confectioners sugar and top with half a maraschino cherry.  Makes 4 dozen cookies.
