Moravian Cookies

Moravian Cookies created by superbuna

Thin, crisp rolled cookies with a good ginger and molasses flavor. If you get tired of rolling these out, roll into balls, flatten them out and bake. I have often made and brushed them with a clear boiled sugar/water glaze, and when the glaze dried my children referred to these as my "varnished" cookies.

  • Using a small amount of dough at a time, roll out on floured surface to about 1/8 inch or more thickness and cut with fancy cutters.
  • Bake in preheated moderate oven 350 degrees F. for about ten minutes or until browned.
  • Cool and decorate.
