You can change this recipe to make a more Central European Honey cookie (pierniczki in Polish) substitute the anise for 2 tsp. cinnamon + 1 tsp. ginger + 1/2 tsp. cloves + 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. You might need to add some more flour to roll & cut out. Bake carefully so they don't burn. To ice: Make a runny icing with icing sugar, egg white and lemon juice. When the cookies are still warm, dip them into this icing, and let dry on a cookie rack. These cookies soften with time. I like to make them at least 3 weeks before Xmas, and keep them in a tin with an apple wedge. Thse are our family XMAS favorites!



This recipe just didn't do it for my husband and I. Although the overall flavor was okay, the texture was too cake-like, puffy, and spongy.



At first we were sure we would not like these cookies made without out butter and which had a wierdish dough. We waited with apprehension as they cooked. But when they were done, we couldn't stop eating them!! And yes, they are a bit cakey. We thought they were like pancake cookies, but again, we could hardly stop eating them!
