Difficulty: easy
Yield: about 25 cookies

Ingredients for the dough: 

Ingredients for the decoration:

Directions:

  1. Combine the ingredients for the dough in a bowl and mix with the hand mixer. If the mixture is too sticky, add a little more flour.
  2. Form balls of approximately 4 cm from the dough, place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and press gently to flatten. Bake in a preheated oven at 190 degrees for about 20 minutes. Let cool.
  3. For the icing, melt Organic Milk Chocolate from Frusano together with margarine in a double boiler. Using a small spoon, spread the chocolate icing on the flat side of the Amerikaner and let them rest on a wire rack until the icing has set.

Variation:

For Amerikaner cookies with a powdered sugar and lemon glaze, process 200g Frusano Organic Corn Sugar  in a blender to a powdered sugar consistency and mix with the juice of two lemons. Brush the glaze on the flat side of the cookies and done!

Tip: For homemade vanilla corn sugar, place the contents of one vanilla bean in an empty screw-top jar with 1 packet of Organic Corn Sugar from Frusano in an empty screw-top jar and let stand for about 1 week.

Enjoy!
