“My mother collected cookbooks like you or I collect tunes for our MP3s. She recently passed away, and I was going through some of her collection, just to feel close to her again. Low and behold, I found this wonderful book called "Wonderful, Wonderful Danish Cooking" by Ingeborg Dahl Jensen (with an introduction by Victor Borge!) published in 1965. This is one of the recipes I found to post for ZWT 6.”

  1. Melt the butter; add onions and brown for 10 minutes over low heat. Add 3 T. of the flour, stirring until smooth. Slowly add the broth or stock, stirring until the mixture comes to the boiling point.
  2. Place the meat in a heavy skillet and sprinkle with the vinegar. Add the prepared sauce, 1 t. salt, the 1/4 t. of white pepper, and mix well. Cover and cook over low heat for 2 hours.
  3. Sift the baking powder, remaining flour and 1/2 t. salt in a bowl. Add parsley, marjoram, and pepper; mix well. Cut in the butter, add the ice water and toss lightly until a ball of dough is formed.
