This is quite an old recipe. It comes from the magazine “As” from the year 1937. I like to imagine that my grandma was baking cookies from this recipe. I can’t ask her, but I know she would like them.
for 30-40 cookies
- 100 g granulated sugar
- 200 g cold butter, diced
- 300 g all purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp sour cream
- 24 almonds, chopped finely (ground ones will be ok too)
- granulated sugar
- 1 egg white, beaten
Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together the sugar and flour. Add the butter and sour cream. Knead the dough quickly.
Roll it to 1-cm thickness. Cut the cookies with a cutter or glass and place them on a baking sheet.
Using a pastry brush, brush the cookies with the egg white. Sprinkle the cookies with the sugar and almonds.
Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
