Thanks-will try to get it from a large bakery-a cake shop or a large store.
Made these for my family reunion. My older sister said " never again " cause she kept eating them! Took a little bit extra time to bake but worth the effort. Very Lemony and quite good. Cut them into almost a 2 bite size. Excellent.
But I couldn't roll it out so I formed a log, chilled very well, then sliced 1/4 inch then baked.
Baking time was off by about ten minutes. Love the lemony flavor, texture was just right!
I made these according to the recipe, and though they did take a few minutes longer to bake, once they were done, the consistency and flavor was great! I made them small--I used bite-size Christmas cookie cutters in various shapes--and it was hard not to just pop them in my mouth as I went along! These are sure to be a hit!
I think perhaps that the time stated for baking is a bit short. It took my 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch scalloped rectangles 15-20 minutes to bake to a finished consistency.
They were pasty. Once you took a bite it was like a mouthful of glue.
These cookies are delicious. The only issue I had was the cooking time. After 6-8 on 325 they were still basically raw. I had to turn my oven up to 350.
I used a German Springerle Cookie Rolling Pin, then a pizza cutter to cut the cookies a part. The dough was kind of sticky and needed some flour to work with it but it was fast and easy.I work with developmentally disabled adults and they made the cookies as described above and they all loved them.I made several batches at home as well.
This cookie has become my favorite Christmas cookie. Has a very crisp, fresh lemon flavor in contrast to other cookies on the Christmas tray. Is, however, time consuming to make.
