German pepper cookies

Yield: 16 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 Egg
½ cup Granulated sugar
1 cup All-purpose flour
pinch Salt
½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Ground white pepper
¼ teaspoon Mixed Spice
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
½ teaspoon Baking powder
1 Finely grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons Chopped mixed candied peel
Powdered sugar (opt)

Whisk egg and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Sift flour, salt, cinnamon, white pepper, Mixed Spice, cornstarch and baking powder into egg mixture. Add lemon peel and candied peel and stir well. Chill 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350'F. (175'C.). Lightly grease several baking sheets. Form mixture into 16 small balls and place well apart on baking sheets. Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes or until well risen and lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Store several days before serving to allow time for flavors to mellow.
