Mandelschnitten

Dough

Pronounciation: mahn dul shnit en

Direct from Germany (thank you Mrs. Radtke!!), this is a very easy cookie recipe that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  Max and I attempted the recipe last week and they turned out to be a complete success at our Christmas feast. Good luck saving enough to share!

Ingredients

Base Cookie

  • 250g all-purpose flour
  • 100g sugar
  • 125g soft butter (unsalted)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg

Topping

  • 150g melted butter (unsalted)
  • 120g honey
  • 200g sugar
  • 200g chopped almonds
  • 3-4 tbs milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 170° C
  2. Mix base ingredients (first use the beater for the mix sans flour, and then once you’ve added the flour bit by bit, mix with your hands)
  3. Roll cookie dough onto a buttered cooking sheet. Shape it into a square (about 1cm or less thick)
  4.  Bake for 10 minutes
  5. While the base cookie is in the oven: mix the ingredients of the topping together
  6. Take the base out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Once cooled, cover the base with the topping mix.
  7. Bake the entire cookie for another 10 minutes (note: the topping will melt and spread over the edges of the dough unless the dough is fit to the edges of the pan)
  8. Let the cookie cool overnight.
  9. Cut the completely cooled cookie into squares to serve.
  10. They are delicious, so try not to eat all of them in one sitting.
