7-layer Cookies Also known as ``Hello Dollies'' or ``Sweet Ass Cookies'' 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup butter-scotch chips 1/2 cup coconut 1/2 cup chopped nuts (preferably pecans or walnuts) 8 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk 1/2 stick of butter Melt butter and pour into an 8x12 baking dish. Add graham cracker crumbs slowly and evenly to make crust. Add the remaining ingredients in the following order: coconut, chocolate chips, butter-scotch chips, nuts, sweetened condensed milk. Cook 20 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let cool completely (usually takes 6 hours at room temperature) and then cut into squares. The great thing about these cookies is that most people hate one ingredient, or just think that they're way too rich. More for you!

You can buy sprouted Ezekiel bread online: Food for Life ,and below is a recipe for "Ezekiel fasting bread". It's probably not the sprouted ezekiel bread you're looking for, but it's the only one I could find...
Ezekiel Fasting Bread 2 1/2 cups hard red wheat 1 1/2 cups spelt or rye 1/2 cup hulled barley 1/2 cup millet 1/4 cup green lentils 2 T. great northern beans 2 T. red kidney beans 2 T. pinto beans Stir the above ingredients very well. Grind in flour mill. Measure into large bowl: 4 cups lukewarm water 1 cup honey 1/2 cup oil 2 T. Red Star Yeast Set aside for 3-5 minutes to allow yeast to grow. Add to yeast mixture: 2 t. salt fresh milled flour from above mixture of grains Stir until well kneaded about 10 minutes. This is a batter type bread an will not form a smooth ball. Pour dough into greased pans. You may use 2 large loaf pans or 3 med. loaf pans or 2-9x13 pans. Let rise in a warm place for one hour or until the dough is almost to the top of the pan. If it rises too much it will over flow the pan while baking. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes for loaf pans and 35-40 minutes for 9x13 pans. For fasting, divide bread into 8 equal parts weighing 1/2 pound each. Eat a 1/2 pound cake and drink a quart of water every day.

Marzipan (marcepan) is actually a candy, rather than a cookie. Here's a recipe for marzipan candy:
Marzipan Yields: 2 lbs Time: ½ hour plus time to decorate This recipe could be used as part of a 12 course meal known in Polish as Wigilia, or on its own. Wigilia is eaten after sundown on Christmas Eve. 1 lb blanched almonds, finely ground 1 lb icing sugar 2 tbsp orange water or rose water food colouring and decorations Combine ground almonds, sugar and flavouring in a saucepan. Cook until mixture leaves side of pan. Roll almond mixture on a flat surface to a ½ inch thickness. Cut into shapes, mold, paint with food colouring, decorate, etc. Place on wax paper to dry for 2 hours.
However, we did come across a recipe called "marzipan cookies". They aren't true marzipan, they are really just almond-flavored cookies, but here's the recipe:
Marzipan Cookies Ingredients * 1/2 cupmargarine * 1/4 cup sugar * 1/8 tsp almond extract * 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour * food coloring Instructions 1. Cream margarine, sugar, food coloring, and almond extract. To achieve desired color: 3 drops red and 2 drops yellow for orange dough, 2 to 3 drops yellow for yellow, 4 to 5 drops red for red, and 4 to 5 drops green for green. 2. Stir in flour; mix thoroughly. 3. Form into desired fruit shapes 4. For most cookies use 2 level tsp dough to form cookies. Place cookies on ungreased baking sheet. 5. Chill 30 minutes. 6. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Bake about 30 minutes, or until done but not brown.

I found the two communion bread recipes listed below. The second one is Lutheran, the first is non-denominational (grin...) Also, at the very bottom, you will find a pseudo-boboli recipe. Actually, as you say, boboli is a registered brand of pizza bread. It derives from the Italian bread called focaccia.
(...pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.... er...computer.... er ...THE GREAT AND POWERFUL PHAED HAS SPOKEN.......)
------------------------------------------------------ Communion Bread Recipe #1 * 4 Cups whole wheat flour * 4 teaspoons baking powder * 1 cup honey * ½ cup milk * ¼ cup (or less) cold water (only if needed) * ¼ cup vegetable oil * ¼ teaspoon salt Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Let stand. Mix milk, honey and oil together in a separate bowl (batter does usually does not stir easily, can use mixer). Add liquid to dry ingrediants. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out to about ¼ inch thickness. Use doughnut cutter for three inch circles or coffee can for six inch circles. Mark with a cross and place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 10 minutes (watch carefully). May be frozen in plastic bags. --------------------------------------------- ST. PETER'S COMMUNION BREAD RECIPE St. Peter's has a tradition of having members of the congregation make the bread that is served at communion. It has become a popular ministry to involve members in the celebration of communion. One of the other secondary attributes of the bread is that it tastes great!! So attached is the recipe if you would like to give it a try. Mix: 3 cups whole wheat flour 1 cup white flour 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoons salt Cut in: 4 rounded Tablespoons shortening Add: 6 Tablespoons honey 1 1/4 cups water Stir. Kneed until smooth and elastic. Roll into tube shape. Slice into 8 slices. Flatten to 3/4" rounds. Bake on cookie sheet at 350° for 10-12 minutes. --------------------------------------------------------- Boboli Pizza Crust Serving Size : 2 Preparation Time :0:00 Categories : Pizza Italian Breads Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method ------ --------- -------------------------------- 2 1/2 cups BREAD flour 1/2 teaspoon -Salt 3/4 teaspoon Active dry yeast 1 cup -Warm water 2 small Cloves garlic -- thinly sliced 2 tablespoons Rosemary* 3 tablespoons Bertolli Light olive oil Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, salt, yeast and water in bowl. Blend well, turn out onto floured surface. Knead well, about 15 minutes. Place in lightly greased bowl, not buttered, cover with a damp cloth and let rise for 1-1/2 hours (until doubled in bulk). Turn dough out, punch down and knead for 5 minutes or so. Return to bowl and let rise until doubled in bulk. Punch down and turn out on lightly floured board. Roll and press out to about 1/2 inch thickness. This recipe makes about 1-12 inchers-so you can judge whether to double or reduce the recipe. Rub surface of baking (cookie) sheet with oil and transfer the dough round to the sheet. Make several indentations with the point of a knife in the dough and insert garlic slices and rosemary into indentations. Rub olive oil (pour) onto surface and gently smooth over the surface. Salt and pepper surface LIGHTLY. Bake 10-12 minutes or until just golden. Remove from oven and TAKE OUT THE GARLIC SLIVERS! You can now top the crust, freeze it, eat it the way it is, smile at it (YOU DID IT!) Remember, when you top it the crust is alread 2/3 baked and will require only enough time so that the cheeses, etc. are bubbly.
