From the kitchen of Carla Wilson. This is a traditional
Slovakian ginger cookie (pronounced
ZAHZ-vor-ni-kee). The cookies set overnight (this
helps them raise). They will DOUBLE in height while
baking. The bottom half will be spongier than the top.
Beat together until frothy:
8 egg YOLKS
4 egg WHITES
1/4 lb butter, melted
Mix together, then SLOWLY add:
1 lb powdered sugar (3 1/2 c)
2 Tbsp ginger
Mix for 10 minutes.
4 1/2 c flour
5 tsp baking powder
Mix for 5 minutes.
Form into a couple of dough balls.
Wrap in wax paper.
Refrigerate a couple hours.
Roll dough 1/2" thick.
Use zazzy cookie cutter, or cutter of your choice.
Place on greased cookie sheets- about 5 sheets.
Let stay overnight.
Bake @ 400, 7 minutes
