“LICHTELAH” COOKIES This dough is a super kid-friendly one. It has the perfect texture for little fingers to roll out, and it’s not a sticky dough, so there is no running to the sink every few minutes. (Hands will get a bit oily, though.) The beauty of these cookies is not their perfection. Let the kids roll the little strands to the best of their abilities, and the results will be adorable.

DOUGH 4 eggs

3 tsp. baking powder

1 ¼ cup oil

5½ cups flour

2 cups sugar

Pinch of salt

1 T. vanilla sugar

1–2 T. lemon juice

TOPPINGS Baking chocolate

Mini nonpareils

Orange sprinkles

DIRECTIONS: 1. Mix first five ingredients very well. 2. Add salt and flour, and mix until incorporated. 3. Add lemon juice, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a good texture is achieved. 4. Preheat oven to 350°. 5. Break off little pieces of dough and roll out into thin 3- to 4-inch strands. 6. For candles: Place dough strands on lined cookie sheet. For donuts: Connect the two ends of the strands to form circles and smooth out. Then place on lined cookie sheet. 7. Bake for 10–15 minutes (bottoms should start to catch a bit of color). 8. Allow to cool. Dip candle cookies into melted chocolate and sprinkles and donut cookies into melted chocolate and nonpareils.
