Zimsterne Spiced Star Cookies

Here's the ultimate Christmas cookie - a blend of wintry flavors, baked in the shape of a star! Make Zimsterne your family's new holiday favorite Christmas cookie recipe. These spice cookies are stellar!


  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cream the margarine, honey, sugar and eggs together in a bowl until smooth and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Divide the dough into thirds. Flatten each one into a circle 1/2 inch thick. Wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight until firm.
  4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out on a lightly-floured surface to 1/8 inch thick. Cut out the dough with a star cookie cutter and place on a lightly-oiled baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Frost if desired.

This is not Zimsterne! A proper Zimsterne is made of eggwhites, sugar, and Almonds--nothing else!
