Magenbrot are a gingerbread type of very traditional Christmas Cookies in Germany and Switzerland. Often sold on Christmas markets. The brown color comes from the dutch cocoa used. Stomach friendly spices like cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg and not much fat might have influence the name (Magen = stomach, Brot = bread). This recipe is based on a traditional recipe, but with a modern twist in the glaze used here. And I have added some fat in this one, while the original recipes don't use fat at all. The cookies are on the dry to very dry side, but that's how they are the best.
