Challenge of the Ochsenauge


I may have mentioned this in a previous entry, but I love Ochsenauge. That is, the German cookie. Known as the Ox Eye in English, it is a delectable German cookie outlined with marzipan and filled with jam, most likely raspberry, pomegranate (Johannisbeeren), or Apricot. These gems are obviously hard to find in the States, but I managed to find them in coffee shops in New York, and I have been able to find some in DC. I had a difficult time finding a recipe for them until recently. Now, there are so many recipes for them that I cannot decide which one to do. Therefore, I plan to try each one and see which one works out the best.
