Spitzgebäck by Christina


250 gr butter
250 gr sugar
1 egg
200 gr hazelnuts
1 P. Vanilla sugar
375 gr flour


In the beginning you mix all the ingredients together until they become a paste. Then you put it into the refrigerator for half an hour.
Afterwards you cut the paste into pieces.

Then you put one by one into the machine and you start turning the handle.

The paste comes out in the shape of a star.
We cut this into little pieces and join the ends together so in the end it looks like a circle.

After that we bale it for 10 minutes in the oven.

The temperature should be around 175 – 200C

In the end you can melt chocolate and pour it in the cookies, so you can have a variety of tastes.

Note: Christina not only wrote the recipie, but also made the cookies and took the pictures herself!!
