"These are sweet Swiss cookies. We usually make them for Weihnachten (Christmas Eve) and top them with sprinkles but they are appropriate year-round."

  1. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Blend in sugar and beat until mixture is thick and pale, about 10 minutes. Mix in the melted butter and salt. Gradually fold in the flour and lemon zest. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour or, preferably, overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheet.
  3. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg yolks and decorate with sprinkles.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden at the edges, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool cookies on racks.



Easy to make & very tasty - thank you for this recipe!

I was very satified with the taste of this cookie. I think it could have used more flavor though. But other than that I would reccomend this.

really good. a waaaaayyyy better recipe than the one my cousin found on google XD. it was easy to make with my cousin and good too^^ we some whip cream to make it fun at the end.. it was alright...

Loved these!!! I made these with my Girl Scout Troop for Thinking Day! They were hard to roll out at first. I made a double batch and made most of these up with the girls helping. We ran out...

This recipe made light tasting cookies, great for tea, but I wouldn't know since they don't last that long! Added a glaze of lemon juice, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
