Zimsterne - (Spicy Star Cookies) 

1/4 cup Margarine
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
3 cups Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Ground Cloves
1/2 cup Unsweetened Apple Juice

Cream the margarine, honey, sugar and eggs together in a bowl until smooth and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Divide the dough into thirds. Flatten each one into a circle 1/2 inch thick. Wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight until firm.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thick.

Cut out the dough with a star cookie cutter and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake in a 375 F. oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Note: These Zimsterne have approximately three quarters teaspoon of sugar per serving.
