my dad just made alot of fried dough it was great lol.

i think i read somewhere that baker's ammounia needs heat for "puffyness" instead of a chemical reaction such as baking soda?

Buckleys cough syrup from Canada also uses ammonium carbonate as an active ingredient intended to help relieve symptoms of bronchitis.

Yay Canada/Buckley's!  It's really popular here, but it tastes like... worse than anything, ever.  In the whole world.  Wonder if it's because of this stuff?

Not sure about the name of the cookies, but I think the substance itself is called Hirschhornsalz in German. I remember seeing it in recipes my grandma had in a cookbook from Germany.

In your recipe, small bottle of oil of lemmon, where do you get this and how much is it as in ounces?

Sorry, I have no idea how much the recipe actually requires! Even the amount of flour is pretty vague - "enough for a stiff dough". My guess would be to add the same amount as you would if this were vanilla extract in sugar cookies, just scale it up because the recipe makes at least 10 dozen cookies. If the first batch isn't to your liking, you can always add more to the rest of the dough.

Or, there are many similar recipes online as well so you could just google "ammonia cookies" and look at several recipes. Then you can pick the one with the amount you like best. Sorry I can't be of more help! My family is pretty lax about measurements in cooking and baking (I can't ever remember using measuring cups to make pancakes!), and my Aunt Mary passed away last month so she took the secrets of these cookies to the grave!

*** Baker's Ammonia supplier update to anyone who is interested. I called most of the imported food stores in my area and one of them sounded like they carry it! I haven't had a chance to stop in yet, it's kind of far from my house. I also found a local grocer who would order it if I wanted.
