    graffeetee's Note:

    Although the name refers to another city, these cookies are actually German in origin. These make a great addition to a cookie assortment. They are a nice contrast to all the buttery or chocolatey goodies and are delicious in their own right.

    for the icing


    1. 1
      Grease and flour a large baking sheet.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 300°F.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat eggs until fluffy.
    4. 4
      Add sugar gradually and continue beating until thickened and pale.
    5. 5
      Mix together the dry ingredients.
    6. 6
      Gradually add to egg mixture and mix until combined.
    7. 7
      Fold in lemon rind, candied fruit and almonds.
    8. 8
      This dough is soft and sticky, so either oil or wet your hands before handling.
    9. 9
      Divide dough into thirds.
    10. 10
      On the baking sheet, form the dough into three long flat "loaves" spaced a few inches apart to allow for spreading. If your baking sheet is large enough, it will all fit on one sheet.
    11. 11
      Bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned.
    12. 12
      While the cookies are baking, make the icing by combining the ingredients. You should have a spreadable consistency.
    13. 13
      Remove cookies from the oven and let stand a few minutes.
    14. 14
      Ice the loaves while they are still on the baking sheet.
    15. 15
      Allow to rest for 5 minutes, then slice the loaves crosswise into approximately 1/2-3/4 inch slices. Do not wait too long before slicing, as the icing will flake off if it cools too much before you slice.
    16. 16
      Allow to cool on the baking sheet. These freeze well and keep well.
