Posted for RecipeZaar World Tour 2006, German Challenge. Number of servings is unknown... I guess it depends on how heaped your teaspoonfuls are LOL. Time is also a guesstimate, but includes refridgerator time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons orange rind (grated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 egg white (beaten)
  • candied green cherries
  • candied red cherries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven 400 F (200 C).
  2. Cream the butter and sugar, then add in the first lot of eggs and the orange rind, mixing well.
  3. Stir in the flour and refridgerate the dough mixture for about 1 hour.
  4. Take a small spoonful of the dough and roll it out into a rope, "tying"the rope loosely (like a pretzel).
  5. Brush with the beaten egg white and decorate with the candied cherries.
  6. Bake at 400 F ( 200 C) until just set, but not browned.
