Nut Slices - XMas Cookies IV

 The next recipe for Christmas cookies is ready to be explored by you!
You think I already have a lot?
Well, you should see how Timo loves those cookies and how they “melt” under my fingers. I really have to hurry to bake new ones. If not, one poor decemberday, there are no cookies left! Uh-OH!

Okay, here are the nut slices. I already posted them last year, but without recipe. Because I really love them and I want you to love them, too, here is it.

In Germany, you can buy these slices in big size in bakeries. I already loved them as a child.
But now, I prefer the smaller ones, because you can better control the amount you eat and I am always a little tickled pink when I filch one out of the cookiebox.


70-80 pieces



>> 250 grams all-purpose flour
>> 4 Tbsp sugar
>> 200 grams unsalted butter, softened
>> 1 egg

Nut Topping:

>> 150 grams unsaltened butter, softened
>> 180 grams icing sugar
>> 200 grounded grams hazelnuts
>> 1 tsp cinnamon, grounded
>> 2 eggs

>> 200 grams dark chocolat

Let´s go:
> Preheat oven to 190°C (370° Fahrenheit)
> Prepare baking sheets with baking paper
> Knead a smooth dough from flour, sugar, butter and egg.
> Roll it out to a rectangle - it`s worth the effort to prepare this rectangle really exact, so it is absolutely perfect to cut later into triangles.

TIP: To roll out the dough without heavy sticking, layer it like this:
aking paper – dough – flour – baking paper. Roll over the last baking paper.

> Prick dough with a fork at some parts

> For the nut topping: mix butter, icing sugar, hazelnuts, cinnamon and eggs.
> Coat onto your dough-rectangle

> Bake it in the middle of your oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly brown.
> Take it out and cut it when it is still hot in small triangles.
Easiest way is that here:

> Let cool down
> Melt chocolate in a warm waterbath (how to see my recipe for the cocoa-spice-mountains here)
> Dip two corners of your triangles into the chocolat, put onto a baking paper and let dry.

TIP: Before dipping into chocolate, shake the slice a bit for that the crumbs fall down. If you do not, your melted chocolate is soon full of little crumbs.

Enjoy! These are really very yummy!
And we do it like every time:
Dancing around in the kitchen, raise your beautiful voices to sing jingle bells and be happy, because you just made the awesomestststst cookies ever! With singing and dancing, they get even better!
