A German spice cookie that my grandma used to make that makes me feel all warm and cozy. I called her for the recipe and she kept saying it's from Martha Croeni, which is a relative that I've never met, but I like her cookies. The recipe calls for the cookies to be rolled in powdered sugar, but Grandma always glazed them because she thought the powdered sugar too messy. Grandma rarely wrote full instructions for recipes, just the ingredients, so the instructions are guesses on my part. Also, the recipe calls for 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. of each spice, but I like it spicy, so I go with the 1/2 tsp. (sometimes even a little more).
