Moravian Spice Cookies
Why This Recipe Works
With roots deep in Eastern Europe, these thin, crisp, spiced cookies have made a name for themselves in the United States due to the Moravian Church settlements in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. The trickiest part about this recipe is rolling the sticky dough incredibly thin. Instead of creaming soft butter, we use a food processor to add cold butter to the dry ingredients to keep the dough manageable. Take care not to overbake these cookies, or they will taste slightly bitter.
