German Rock Raisin Cookie Recipe
Does anyone have a recipe they would share for traditional German cookies called rock raisin cookies? The back story is that I met a man at a party who mentioned that when he was a little boy he and his grandfather used to make them. (I thought it might be fun to try and re-create them.) He remembered a few things that might help.
- They were giant cookies (as "big as boulders")
- Had a mix of black and yellow raisins in them
- Were similar to a simple butter-based cookies (ie, Lemon Sugar Cookies from America's Test Kitchen) that I made for the party, which had lemon zest in the dough and on the outside (they were rolled in sugar/lemon zest)
I've found a few recipes for rock raisin cookies online but trust that someone in the group has made something authentic, tried, tested, and true (and something not made with lard). Any ideas?
