These tiny star-shaped cinnamon cookies are a Danish holiday tradition. They make a wonderful companion to coffee or tea. Use organic ingredients for an extra-special treat.
|1 cup butter, softened||1 teaspoon baking soda|
|2 cups molasses||2 teaspoons cinnamon|
|1 cup buttermilk||1/2 teaspoon salt|
|8 cups unbleached flour|
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Cream butter until very soft. Slowly beat in the molasses.
Add the buttermilk and blend well.
Sift 2 cups of flour with the baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to the butter mixture and blend well.
Add the remaining flour and mix thoroughly. The dough should be stiff.
Flour board or surface and roll dough to about 1/3-inch thickness. If the dough seems too soft, sprinkle more flour over it and roll until it becomes firm. Cut into stars with a cookie cutter.
Bake for 15 minutes on greased cookie sheets.
Store in an airtight tin for up to 10 days.
