This week Teanna of Spork or Foon? selected Mrs. Vogel’s Scherben. My son loved these crispy cookie. They really couldn't be easier, fried dough covered in cinnamon and sugar than dusted with powder sugar before serving. Time is a requirement, since they need two periods of chilling.
The dough was very easy to make and roll out. The cookies them self didn't have much flavor and surprisingly the dusting of powdered sugar was what gave these cookies their appeal. I think that adding some flavoring, orange, lemon or lime zest, to the dough would really make these cookies special. You could also add some citrus zest to the sugar to give these little crisps a second layer of flavor.
We made some with cinnamon and sugar and some with just sugar.
