Oma’s Gsgsälzbredle


About 40 cookies 

Here is one of grandma’s cookie recipe.  Gsgsälzbredle is the Swabian Word for Marmalade Kekse or Marmalade Cookies.

1⁄3 cup unsalted butter, softened
2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
6 tablespoons marmalade (any kind you like)
1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions
Preheat oven to 375°F Grease a cookie sheet (I just use parchment paper).

Grandma mixed the ingredients by hand but I found using the kitchenair mixer is much easier with the same end result. 

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and marmalade and mix until thoroughly combined. Add additional marmalade if the batter is too stiff.
In another bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. With the mixer running, slowly add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture until blended.
Drop by spoonfuls on the cookie sheet; do not crowd the cookies as the batter will spread during baking. Bake until the cookies spread out and are lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.
Cool a minute or two on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
