Ready for something different, something addictive? You like it spicy and you like cookies not overhelming sweet? Are you looking for a surprising treat? Then try these cookies. They have a wonderful texture. On the first bite you will have the taste of buttery cinnamon with a delicate crunch. Then of roasted almonds and hatzel nuts and then the highlight, the pepperiness of cayenne (or chili). I use cayenne for these cookies and I like this spicy, almost hot ending taste of these cookies. The shape of these cookies is in Germany known for cookies called "Kipferl" (shaped like a "C" or like a "half-moon"). The cookies will rise just a very little during baking. For the texture of the cookies, it is important that the cookies are "cooled", so that the butter inside is firm enough. If you like it a bit sweeter dust the cookies with powdered sugar (instead of dutch processed cacao). Hope you will enjoy this different treat as much as I do.
