“Glenhodag was looking for Brezeli recipes, a Swiss cookie you need a special iron for. Glenhodag's grandmother is Swiss and introduced her to this Swiss speciality. As I don't have a Brezeli iron, I couldn't try the recipe. This recipe differs from the Berner Brezeli recipe (also posted on zaar) in that the dough is liquid, and you therefore place it on the middle of the iron, and not on the individual ornaments. The Brezeli are separated when they are cold. Preparation time is estimated.”
