CULINARY ARTS: 3 Christmas cookies you can easily bake

Published: Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 10:42 AM.

Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for eight to 10 minutes. The cookies will not brown so pay close attention to them. Cool them thoroughly.

Mix the glaze. Dip each cookie’s top into the glaze, allowing the glaze to drip down the sides. You also can sprinkle with candy decorations.


We used to get these German “pepper nut” cookies from local bakeries, but Mom made her own at Christmas.

I don’t recall these having much “pepper” taste, but the recipe calls for a wee bit. Don’t let the long list of ingredients, the longer directions, or the overnight wait before baking throw you.

These aren’t really that tricky — and are well worth the effort.
