Braune Zucker Plätzchen

Welcome to the forty-eighth post in my year-long Cookie Series, where I want to bring you a new and delicious cookie recipe every Tuesday of 2015!

"Braune Zucker Plätzchen" means "Brown Sugar Cookies" in German.

Speaking of German, I've been studying it quite a bit lately. I love learning another language, but I don't know how to say very much yet.

For example, I can now say, "Reis und ein Apfel", which means, "rice and an apple". Mmm. Tasty.



Braune Zucker Plätzchen without raisins, cherries or nuts.
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. clove
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. orange zest
  • 1 cup raisins or dried cherries, optional
  • 1/2 nuts, optional

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Sift baking powder, cinnamon, clove, salt and flour into a bowl. Set aside.
