RECIPE: What kind of cookies would you dry overnight?
The recipe that Roselin posted on Lisa's German cookie thread reminded me of something.
My grandma used to make cookies at Christmas that she cut into diamonds or squares, covered with a dish towel, and left out to dry overnight on the dining room table. She baked them the next morning and I think she glazed them, too. Do you think they may have been lebkuchen? I've never seen a recipe using that drying technique, but I don't know what else they could be. Maybe Springerle? Yet I'm sure these cookies had candied fruit and nuts. Any ideas? They were my favorites. Then again, all cookies are my favorites.
