Spritz Cookie Gravestone
This recipe is set in stone.
Spritz cookies are a Scandinavian Christmas tradition. The cookies are spritzen’ed, or “squirted,” through a press with patterned holes and dipped in chocolate or other flavoring. They are meant to be dry, crisp, and buttery, and Naomi Miller-Dawson’s recipe is decidedly not meant to be forgotten.
Nestled along an unmarked, unpaved footpath in Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery, the 87-year-old’s lighthearted gravestone epitaph is a tip of the hat to life’s simple joys.
Know Before You Go
Technically, the grave is located in lot 44807, it can be a bit hard to find, as signage is sparse. Just look for a worn, grassy footpath directly across from the cemetery’s Prospect Park West entrance, then follow the signs marking the numbered lots and keep an eye out for the unique design of Miller-Dawson’s memorial, meant to resemble an open cookbook.
