Amerikaner - ready to eat

They are truly favorites in this house and a family recipe since even I can remember. The recipe is out of my mom's handwritten cookbook she wrote down in cooking school before my time - don't even think about asking when that might have been.

You can find them in the  German bakeries with a sugar and chochlate glaze half white half black. We make them a little smaller as there, just because it is fun to get seconds and the real ones are BIG almost as big as your hand and  we they come in all colors from white to black to pink and yellow and green and blue with and without sprinkles and clown faces and bear faces. We already had it ALL. They still taste YUMMY.



125 g butter
175 g sugar
1 package vanilla sugar
3 eggs
lemon peel
1 pinch salt
500 g flour
1 package  backing powder (3 tsp)
250 ml milk
1Tbl rum

Heat the oven at 310 degrees. Mix all the ingredients. Just take the a tablespoon and dab a spoonful of dough on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake about 10 minutes until the edge is gold yellow.
