Country Cake at ir's Best


5 1/2 cups Swansdown® or Softasilk® flour
3 eggs beaten
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
Beat eggs well and add to melted butter. Dissolve sugar into milk and add to the eggs and butter. Mix flour and baking soda together and slowly add to the above mixture to form a soft dough. Roll out about 1/4 inch thick and cut into 2 1/2 inch diameter circles. Place a teaspoon full of the filling onto the circle, fold over and seal the sides together so as to make an egg shape with the filling inside. Bake cookies in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
2 cups finely ground walnuts
2 egg whites [beaten]
1 tablespoon sugar
pinch of cinnamon
Mix the above in the order presented.


1/2 cup Crisco
1-1/4 cup sugar (cream together)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups sifted cake flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cups sweet milk
3 egg whites (beaten)

Cream Crisco and sugar good.
Sift all dry ingredients 3 times.
Add dry ingredients alternately with milk beating good after each addition of flour.
Fold in egg whites last.
Bake in layers at 375 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes.


Springerle Cookies Tried and True:

1/2 teaspoon * baker's ammonia (Hartshorn)
2 tablespoons milk
6 large eggs, room temperature
6 cups powdered sugar (1 - 1 1/2 #)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened but not melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon oil of anise, lemon or any other flavor
2 lb. box sifted cake flour (Swansdown or Softasilk)
grated rind of orange or lemon - optional (enhances flavor of the traditional anise or the citrus flavors)
more flour as needed

Recipe Directions:
Dissolve hartshorn in milk and set aside. Beat eggs till thick and lemon-colored (10-20 minutes). Slowly beat in the powdered sugar, then the softened butter. Add the hartshorn and milk, salt, preferred flavoring, and grated rind of lemon or orange, if desired. Gradually beat in as much flour as you can with the mixer, then stir in the remainder of the 2 lbs. of flour to make stiff dough. Turn onto floured surface and knead in enough flour to make a good print without sticking. Follow general directions for imprinting and drying cookies. Bake on greased or baker's parchment-lined cookie sheets at 255° to 325° till barely golden on the bottom, 10-15 minutes or more, depending on size of cookie. Store in airtight containers or in zipper bags in the freezer. They keep for months, and improve with age. Yield 3 to 12 dozen.

Try various flavors, such as almond, or add lemon or orange flavoring to dough. To make them really special, brush melted bittersweet chocolate on the bottoms. This goes great with orange flavored cookies.

Hartshorn or Baker's Ammonia
*(a.k.a. Ammonium Carbonate) An old-time leavening unexcelled for any cookies, producing an especially light, delicate texture. Hartshorn and baking powder can be used interchangeably in cookie recipes. Dough’s made with Hartshorn store well and its leavening action is only triggered by heat, not moisture. Not affected by age, but will evaporate! There'll be an ammonia smell during baking, but not in your cookies!


4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
4-1/2 cups flour
4 drops anise oil
anise seed for pan (optional)
Beat whole eggs till thick. Add sugar gradually, beating well between each addition until all is combined and then beat well for about 15 minutes. This makes the finished cookie fine grained and light. Add the anise oil and blend. Fold in the flour lightly. Roll out the dough about 1/2 inch thick. Flour the springerle molds carefully and press firmly onto the dough. Remove the mold and cut the cookies along the line of the imprint. Flour the mold each time it is used. Sprinkle anise seed, if desired, on greased cookie sheets before placing the cookies on them. Place cookies on greased sheets.
Let cookies stand overnight in a cool place to dry. In the morning, place first in a 375 degree oven to set the shape, but reduce heat immediately to 300 degrees. In 15 minutes the cookies should be light in color with the appearance of having been iced. Makes 72. Keep cookies in a tight can for the two or three weeks before using to have the best flavor. To soften them, put a cut apple in the can a day or two before using. The apple can also add a delightful aroma to the cookies.
