German Christmas Cookies

For many German working mothers, it is still very important to find the time to bake “from scratch.” This recipe comes from a working mother who likes not just the cookies’ taste, but the recipe’s versatility. From one basic recipe you can easily make three types of cookies.

About 40 cookies


1 cup, plus 4 teaspoons powdered sugar
3/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons ground hazelnuts (almonds or coconut may be substituted)
2 egg whites
Baking wafers – 3 inches (these crisp, flat wafers are widely used in European baking and are available in specialty food stores in the U.S.)

Mix together all ingredients. Use a teaspoon to drop small scoops of dough onto the baking wafers (the wafers make it easy to remove the cookies from the cookie sheet). Place on a cookie sheet on the second shelf from the bottom of the oven. Bake until golden brown at 350-375 for 20 minutes.
