The-final-countdown-to-Weihnachten is in full swing in our house…that means that once-yellow-pajama’ed dude is eating cookies faster than I can make ’em!
Here’s another favourite of his:
…made with a secret German ingredient: Waldmeister Goetterspeise…
You’ll need: 3/4 cup gluten free flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/3 cup
butter margarine, 2 tbsp warm water, cookie cutters & 1 package Waldmeister Goetterspeise (sweet woodruff flavoured jello) –
Waldmeister is a wild growing herb that, when made into syrup, is used as a flavouring for everything from beer to cookies in Germany. It’s also a pretty funky green colour:
mix everything together
roll the dough out flat
cut out your cookies
put your cut-outs on a greased (or baking-papered) cookie sheet
bake your cookies at 180C/325F/Gasmark 3 for 8 – 10 minutes
While your cookies are baking melt some lactose free white (or dark) chocolate in a bowl, mix in 1/2 tsp of cinnamon for a Christmas-y-er taste.
drizzle your chocky-cinnamon mixture onto your cookies
let cookies cool and hide ’em from the dude!
