DIRECTIONS

  • Keep lard 20 minutes on room temperature to become soft. Put lard into flour; add sugar, triturated walnut, yolk, and honey, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and pepper. Make crisp dough out of it. Leave the dough 1 to 2 hours in cold place. Make thin (up to 5 mm) flat surface and cut cookies with your wooden mould. If you do not have one, use your mould you have for other cookies (stars, rabbits, ducks, Santa�s etc.). Put them on greased surface and bake them on 200°C about 25 minutes. Serve with hot tea. You can vary spices but be careful: no spice should prevail. I am not sure about number of cookies you will get, depends how big your mould is.
