Mandelspritzgebäck (German Christmas Almond Cookies)
60 mins (prep 45, cooking 15)
10 ingredients
50 servings
I can't remember a single holiday season without this typical German cookie recipe. My Mom and my mother-in-law bake these cookies. As a child we helped bake them, and the fun part for us kids was always to "style" the cookies. I prefer them with any icing or decoration.
