 Ingredients List

  • 2/3 c Molasses
  • 2 1/2 tb Honey
  • 1/2 c Lard
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 4 c All purpose flour
  • 2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Baking soda
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/3 c Whole blanched almonds
  • 1 c Diced candied lemon peel
  • 1 Egg yolk


Combine molasses, honey, lard and sugar in a heavy sauce pan. Place over
medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to foam
and bubble. Remove from heat and let cool 15 minutes.

In a large bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Add
whole eggs to molasses mixture; pour at once into flour mixture. Stir until
a soft dough forms. Divide dough in half. Wrap each half separately in
plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours (preferably over night).

Preheat the oven tp 400 degrees F.

Roll out half piece of dough at a time on a heavily floured board to
thickness of about 1/8 inch. Cut into rectangles about 2x3 inches in size.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Beat egg yolk with 2t water. Brush cookies
with egg mixture. Decorate the tops of cookies with almonds and candied
lemon peel. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, watching closely because these bake
very quickly and will burn before you know it.
