DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all dry ingredients together.
  • Mix together water, milk, eggs, and extracts.
  • Cream butter.
  • Mix in sugar, a little at a time.
  • Add liquid ingredients, mix well.
  • Add dry ingredients in several steps, blend well after each.
  • The dough needs to be fairly firm, not like cookie dough but drier than cake dough, if it is too runny add a little more flour.
  • Put dough about two tablespoons on a greased cookie sheet, don't place too close together as this will spread.
  • Bake in a preheated 300ºF to 325ºF oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • After about 10 minutes in the oven brush the exposed side with some milk.
  • Finish baking till the dough turns a golden brown, don't overbake.
  • Light Glaze:
  • Mix powdered sugar with enough water to make a spreadable mass, you can't mess this one up, too thin- more sugar, too thick- more water.
  • Dark Glaze:
  • Mix powdered sugar and cocoa and proceed as for light glaze.
  • Glaza the underside of the Amerikaner with either or both glazes.
