My favorite cookies – vanilla cookies, hussars and cinnamon almond slivers

Every year I am asked if I have favorite cookies. Answering that is incredibly hard for me, because I have many favorite cookies. It would not be fair to answer, it’s the vanilla cookies, the hussars or even the cinnamon cookies … I like them almost all of them, they’re all delicious in their own way and even more beautiful is that it’s a reminder or just about any cookie variety History is … do you know that? But over the years, I have deliberately decided for and against some ingredients. So, for example, the hazelnut.

Cinnamon almonds

All times hazelnuts

My mother used to cook only with hazelnuts … she was crazy about the hazelnut. As a child I only knew the walnut besides the hazelnut (because my grandmother had a big walnut tree in the garden and we children like to throw nuts  … – and there is another memory!).

Hazelnuts and allergies

Unfortunately, the hazelnut did not get to me over time. Over time, I developed allergies, hay fever, and cross allergies. Well, what do you do then? So, I go searching informs and read a lot.

Alternative for allergies: almonds, walnuts and macademia

So I deliberately chose hazelnut and replaced it with almonds, walnuts and sometimes Macademia nuts. In the Christmas time but also throughout the year, I like baking with almonds. I tolerate almonds well, they are so valuable, healthy and simply delicious … so and so I like to share one of my favorite recipes with you: they are cinnamon-almonds or Christmas almonds, call them what you like … one thing I can say they are incredibly delicious, made in a nutshell, succeed, addictive and always go – no matter what the season! Try it out !!!
