Amoniaczki

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Old fashioned Scandanavian cookies that use baker's ammonia for the leavening. Baker's ammonia can be purchased at most grocery and baker's supply shops, and cause the cookies to reek to high Heaven in the oven. Once cooked, though, they are all vanilla and peppermint.

Ingredients

    ¾ cup sugar
    3 tbsp non-hydrogenated shortening
    1 egg
    ½ cup sour cream (I used low fat)
    ½ tsp peppermint extract
    1 tsp vanilla
    pinch salt
    ¾ tsp bakers' ammonia
    1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
    Sanding or coarse raw sugar, for dusting


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment.
In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening until smooth.
Beat in the egg, sour cream, peppermint extract, vanilla and salt.
Beat in the flour and bakers’ ammonia.
Either drop heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets or roll out between pieces of wax paper and cut “fingers” before placing on the sheets (dough will be sticky).
Sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Bake for 12-14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and just a touch golden.
Cool on the sheet for 30 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
