Double oats, Lebkuchen Gewürz secented cookies
My husband took last week a week and a half belated vacation; we resolve to stay at home to make some smalls improvements, once we will take real vacations on January. Yesterday we hosted some friends for a barbecue, so I bake these delicious oat cookies tasted with lebkuchen Gerwurz for the kid eats at afternoon, well, and grows too, they love it, and I confess they are the best oat cookies that I ever tasted. The traditional spice is sold ready made in packets I sold German’s mark Ostmann You can fashion your own concoction. I have a recipe for the spice. It will follow the cookie recipe. I know it is all metric but I use scales to measure baking ingredients so I have never converted them. I am sure there are conversion charts in many cookbooks or on line • 2 sticks butter softned • 1 cup raw sugar cane (or moscabado sugar) • ½ cup white sugar • 2 eggs • 1 1/2 cup flour • 1 teaspoon salt • 1 tsp baking soda • 1 teaspoon Lebkuchen Gerwürz • 2 cups oat meal (I use Quaker Quick.) • 1 cup oat bran • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts Method 1 Cream butter and sugars add eggs and beat well. 2 Sift flour, salt, baking soda and Lebcuchen Gewürz.
