Moravian Snowflakes

Moravian Snowflakes may be prepared by using a traditional Buttermilk Moravian Cookie dough formula. This old world classic results in paper-thin, spice-scented cookies that bake crisp. Although a fluted, round cutter is how they were originally hand crafted, a snowflake shape makes the most beautiful holiday cookies that may be offered to guests when entertaining or packaged as gifts. The cookies may soften if unexpected humidity is present. Place cookies that have not been decorated on half sheet pans & bake at 300 degrees for 6 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool completely & they will be crisp again. I’ll be sharing the secrets to making these essential holiday treats plus pointers for packaging & serving them this morning on WBRC Good Day Alabama so I do hope you’ll join me.

makes about 2 1/2 dozen

Well chilled dough & a heavily floured surface will keep it from sticking to the surface & the pastry pin. Freeze as necessary during the process for the best results. 

1/4 cup softened butter
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
3 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp whole buttermilk
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground allspice
A pinch of kosher salt
11 Tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp meringue powder 
1 Tbsp hot water

Cream the butter & the sugar in an electric stand mixer on Medium speed until light & airy, about 4 minutes. Add the molasses & the buttermilk & blend until combined. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. Whisk together the flour, the soda, the cinnamon, the ginger, the nutmeg, the allspice & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Medium-Low speed just until combined. The dough will be very soft. Turn it out onto a well floured surface & knead into a disc. Place in plastic wrap. Freeze 1 hour or chill 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Working with small pieces of dough, roll it out onto a well floured surface to a 1/16-inch thickness. Lift & flip the dough over during the procedure several times to ensure it is not sticking to the surface. Portion shapes using a 3 3/4-inch snowflake cutter. Carefully transfer them to parchment paper-lined half sheet pans using a pancake spatula, if necessary, spacing 1-inch apart. Bake, in batches on the center rack, 9 to 11 minutes or until the tops of the cookies appear set & golden around the edges. Cool completely on the pans. 

Combine the powdered sugar, the meringue powder & the hot water in a bowl. Place in a piping bag fit with a 00 tip. Pipe lines over the surface of each cookie to resemble snowflakes. Let stand 30 minutes or until set.
