|PIERNIKI (POLISH SPICE COOKIES)|
1 to 1 1/2 c. honey
Pinch of black pepper
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 c. sugar
4-5 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. baking soda dissolved in water
Heat honey until it boils, then allow it to cool until lukewarm. Sift the flour with the spices.
Beat the eggs with the sugar until thick. Add the soda, then the honey and the flour. Mix well.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut cookies in whatever shapes you like.
Bake on buttered sheets in a preheated 350°F oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until just lightly browned.
The pierniki may be decorated with a thin glaze made of confectioners' sugar, water, almond or vanilla extract and a drop of food coloring.
