Crunchy German rock sugar cookies with a hint of caramel. A cookie which will make everybody smile for sure.
German rock sugar, originated in the East, is nothing more than lumps of crystallized sugar. I used to eat it secretly from the little sugar pot at my mothers house when I was young. It crackled so good in your mouth and tastes a bit like caramel. Hence that's where I got my strong preference for German rock sugar cookies. And today a delicious recipe.
