    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    A simple, easy and delicious German and Swiss Christmas cookie from Oetker Baking is Fun. The weight measurements are how the original recipe was written. If you have a kitchen scale, I find it to be the quickest and most accurate way of measuring ingredient. NOTE: 1 package of Oetker vanilla sugar is equivalent to 1 to 2 tsp vanilla extract.

      These little ditties are super tasty. I did however find that the dough was way to soft to roll out, so instead I used a mini ice cream scopper and made cinammon balls. I think I didn't beat the eggs long enough..but I was hungry and impatient :) Can't wait to make them again! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT6 Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens.

      With all the baking I've been doing, I had to cut this recipe back to just 1/3 its original size! However, closer to Yuletide I intend to make the whole thing, 'cause THESE LITTLE GOODIES HAVE A WONDERFUL TASTE! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Potluck Tag Game]
