I went to Wrocław recently with some good friends and we picked up a bag of minty Uszatki (“eared”) pierniczki from Kopernik at the airport with our few remaining złoty. Pierniczki, or pierniki, are Polish gingerbread biscuits, slightly soft and heavily spiced. They come in a lot of shapes and sizes and are sometimes filled. Traditionally the dough is allowed to rest for a long time, possibly a year. This is a quicker recipe, though it does still call for at least a few hours’ rest.
I’m dubious but very, very intrigued. Lemon drizzle is my fave.
Was shown the light this past New Years and have been enjoying whiskey sours ever since. Keep forgetting the recipe though.
Pour 2 parts bourbon, 1 part lemon juice (lime’s nice too), ½ part simple syrup, and ½ part egg white in to a shaker with cubed ice and shake hard until very cold. Strain into a tumbler with fresh ice, garnish with orange if you’ve got it.
