German Christmas Cookie Recipes

Here is one of my easy cookie recipes for German N├╝rnberger Busserl.

These German spice cookies have to be stored well in an airtight tin, but will keep for about 8 weeks.

Bake a big batch of these easy cookies for Advent and you will always have cookies to hand if unexpected guests arrive.

German Nuernberger Busserl

4 dessert spoons honey
470g sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 dessert spoon cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cardamom
70g candied lemon peel, finely chopped
60g candied orange peel, finely chopped
70g walnuts, roughly chopped
60g almonds, finely ground
500g flour
1 tsp baking powder

Warm the honey in a bowl and add the eggs. Beat until foamy.

Add all the other ingredients, mix well and knead the dough thoroughly.

Cover the bowl and leave at room temperature for a day.

Grease a baking tray and spinkle with flour. Form cherry sized balls from the mixture and place on the baking tray. Bake in the middle of the oven at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes.

Enjoy my German spice cookie recipe.
