Nurnberger Cookies

Nurnberger Land is a district in Bavaria, Germany from which these Nurnberger Cookies originated. They are deliciously spicy and warming with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Nature's honey sweetens.


1 cup honey
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2-3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Slivered almonds for decoration, (optional)


Mix honey, sugar, eggbeater, lemon juice and rind. Blend dry ingredients. Stir in. Chill overnight.

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Roll out small amount of dough at a time to 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 2-inch rounds. Place on nonstick cookie sheet; place a slivered almond in center if desired. Bake until set.

Immediately brush with glazing icing.

Icing: Boil 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water until first indication of a thread appears (230 degrees). Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup powdered sugar and brush lightly over cookies (when icing gets sugary, reheat slightly, adding a little water until clear again).
