TONS of cookies!!!!!
2 Hr 55 Min
10 Min


  • 1 c
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp
    baking amonia **
  • 1 lb
  • 2 c
  • 3
  • 2 tsp
    anise oil **
  • 10 c
    flour (or more)

How to Make Mrs Fiegels Cut out Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dissolve the baking amonia in the milk==Heat in LARGE microwavable bowl (trust me-this will really expand). It will smell like amonia-don't let this deter you as it isn't in the flavor-it's for keeping the cookies fresh. NOTE the baking amonia is used in Europe as a preservative to keep things fresher. It does not compromise the cookies at all.
  2. Beat lard until smooth as possible, then gradually add the sugar and eggs, one at a time. To this add the milk/amonia mix and the anise oil
  3. Add enough flour (I always start at 8 cups and add up to 10--more than 10 cups makes dough too flowery) to make dough easy to handle. Roll on parchment paper to desired thickness. Cut into shapes
  4. Bake at 375 degrees apx 10 minutes-you don't want the edges brown. NOTE that when you open the oven door on the first batch, there is a powerful smell of amonia. The cookies will not taste like that-- Cool on rack. Frost, decorate and enjoy
