Wow, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted anything on this blog. I have been so pre-occupied with grad school and other life events that I mostly forgot about it.
Here is a quick recipe for cookies that I actually made back when I was participating in Vegan MOFO. They are called Nuss-Guatsla, and they are actually accidentally vegan, so I didn’t need to make any changes. According to my cookbook they are a specialty from Stuttgart. They come together very quickly!
- 1 cup ground hazelnuts
- 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 5 Tbsp. cold coffee
You can make a glaze for these cookies too.
- 2-3 Tbsp. Lemon juice
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
In a bowl combine the hazelnuts, powdered sugar and coffee into a smooth dough. Roll out the dough, and make round cookies with a cookie cutter. Place them on wax paper, and allow them to dry for 8 hours. I put them in my dehydrator to speed up the process. These cookies should hold together well, but they will stay soft. You could also dry them out in the oven at a low temperature.
Once they are completely dry, you can make the glaze, and add to the cookies with a pastry brush.
