Here is one of my favorite family Christmas recipes. I made them this week to eat and give to friends:
German Hazelnut Cookies
4 cups hazelnuts, finely chopped in a food processor
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 sticks butter
3 cups flour
cinnamon and nutmeg to please
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Mix ingredients together. Roll out and cut with cookie cutters or into squares. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes.
When cookies are cooling, mix lemon juice with powdered sugar to make a thin glaze. Glaze cookies when cool.
