Recipe: German Christmas


Basic ingredients
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tbs. hot water
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

    • Mix the sugar with the well-beaten eggs. Add the soda dissolved in hot water, the nuts and sift in the spices with the flour. Add more flour if needed to make a dough stiff enough to roll. Roll out until the dough is about 1/8 inch thick. Cut into tiny rounds about as large as a quarter of a dollar and bake in oven at 400 F until golden brown. Take out and roll at once in powdered sugar.
