Hildegardplatzchen

Sprechen sie Deutsch?  St. Hildegard spice cookies are so good and so fall!  I saw this recipe at Catholic Cuisine blogspot, here.

Cream together 1 stick of butter and 3/4 cup white granulated or brown sugar in a large bowl


Add two eggs



In another bowl, mix 3 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 teaspoons nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon cloves



Add flour gradually to sugar mixture to form dough



HINT:  Recipe said to "add a little water" if dough seemed too dry.......how much is "a little"?  I simply wet my hands and worked it a few times and no more dryness.

Roll out 1/4 inch thick




Cut with a 3-inch cutter



Bake 350 degrees 12-15 minutes (watch carefully, mine were done in 10!) 



I think I would ice these next time.  Maybe use less nutmeg.  Perfect with the hot beverage of your choice, or a cold glass of milk.




Decisions, decisions



Edited it add another way to enjoy them



A dixie size cup (may not need to use all of it) resulted in this ice cream sandwich

  7. Cookies look delicious Barb! I need to bake something soon. It throws my calorie counting off but it is worth it. It's almost 5:30 am and I'm awake blogging from my IPhone here in bed. Sinuses are draining badly. I just popped another red sinus pill hoping to dry up this congestion. Well at least I can visit with my blog friends.

  10. These remind me of what we used to call Santa Claus (or as the Dutch would say, Sinterklaus) cookies. Yum! And I see you have a Keurig - how do you like it? It looks like they have oodles of flavors for both coffee and tea. Hope your week is going well!

  18. Barb, I would enjoy these cookies. Might cut back on the nutmeg just a wee bit. We have the Keurig at our office, and the company pays for it and the coffee. We have a zillion flavors! May I ask where got the holder to display the coffee?
