My favourite christmas cookies ^.^
(To get rid of the egg yolks this recipe leaves you with, you can make another kind of cookie, Mailänderli for instance.)[Basler Brunsli]
300g ground almonds
1 pinch of cinnamon powder
2 egg whites
100g baking chocolate
2 tbsp Kirsch
Mix up the almonds, the sugar and the cinnamon.
Beat the egg whites until they're stiff, fold them into the almonds.
Melt the chocolate (with a tiny bit of water), add both it and the Kirsch to the almonds.
Gently stir until you've got a homogeneous mass.Thoroughly cool the cookie dough.
Roll out the dough about 7mm thick (on sugar, if you want to avoid it sticking to whatever's beneath it), apply cookie cutters. The less dough you nibble away, the more cookies you'll get (but the dough is quite delicious!).
Bake cookies for about 10-15min at 140°C (they should not stick to the baking parchment anymore, but still be soft).Do not eat right away, they're still hot, being fresh out of the oven and all...
