  •          4    Eggs
  •       1 lb    Bakers Sugar
  •     17 g    Cinnamon
  •       5 g    Ground Cloves
  • Zest of    1 Lemon
  •     68 g    Candied Lemon and Orange Peel, combined
  •       2 g    Cardamom
  •   500 g    Flour
  •   ¼ tsp    Hirschhornsalz
  •               Confectioners Sugar for dusting


The candied peels come diced but need to be chopped smaller. Spraying your chopping knife with Pam will make this much easier.
Beat together sugar and eggs until sugar is dissolved, then add rest of ingredients, knead and allow to rest overnight.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on parchment paper covered cookie sheet spacing the balls 1 inch apart.
Bake for 10 – 15 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly and dust with confectioners sugar.
