Molly53 was kind enough to post this in the German food forum. I have not made these, although I have tasted the commercial product at an Oktoberfest. Yum and more yum. If this recipe is half as good, it will be great! The recipe called for 7 grams of potash. I substituted 1 tsp. of baking powder, but I have no idea if this is the correct amount or not. Prep time is a guesstimate.
- 625 g all-purpose flour
- 160 g butter
- 160 g sugar
- 160 g honey
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 125 g coarsely ground almonds
- 125 g raisins
- 125 g candied lemon peel, chopped
- 250 g marmalade (your choice of flavors) or 250 g jam (your choice of flavors)
- dipping chocolate (semisweet or bittersweet)
- Using all of the ingredients down to the cocoa, knead all the ingredients together and then remove 1/3 of the dough to use as a cover. Roll out the other 2/3 of the dough onto a well-greased cookie sheet.
- Make the filling by combining the almonds, raisins, lemon peel and jam.
- Spread the filling onto the dough on the cookie sheet.
- Roll out the remaining 1/3 of dough and cover the ingredients on the cooking sheet. Bake in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
- When done, remove from oven. While still very warm, cut into squares. When cooled decorate with dipping chocolate. This can either be by dipping half of the square into the softened chocolate or by dripping the chocolate over the squares in a zig-zag pattern.
