Going Halfway Around the World: How to Make German Cookies - Articles Surfing

I absolutely loved experimenting with foreign recipes, especially dessert recipes, when I was in high school. One of my favorite ones to make is German Cookies. I first learned of it after I'd tried a recipe for German Crumble Cake.

Today it's the second most common dessert I make. The cookies themselves aren't really sweet (unless I've been making them wrong all this time), but sweetness has never been a "must-have" factor for me when it comes to a dessert recipe. And you can always experiment by placing icing on the cookies or adding more sugar.

German Cookies is also a real 'hands on' recipe that contains a hefty bit of butter. Hope you enjoy!

German Cookies

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

Take a sifter, a rolling pin, a baking board, and cookie cutters (optional). Sift the flour onto the baking board. Make a dent in the middle of the flour.

Pour the Vanilla Extract onto the flour and sprinkle sugar on top. Cut the butter into small pieces and scatter them on the flour. Crack the eggs and pour the yolks into the dent.

Mix all ingredients by hand, and smooth the dough flat about a half centimenter thick with the rolling pin. Engrave the dough with cookie cutters or roll and flatten into circle shapes.

Grease a cookie sheet and place cookie dough shapes on top. Put the oven on 350 degrees Farenheit (ovens may vary) and back for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Let them cool. Any leftovers should be kept covered so they will last.

And there you have it! You've just made delicious German Cookies!
