Pyramid cookies

Today finally I found a time to check one of the recipes I found in book Mum sent me few weeks ago. This little book unfortunately is not complete - few pages missing. It is Dr Oetker's recipe book from 1930.

I decided to bake cookies which I'm calling Pyramid shortbread cookies.

To make them you need:

60 g sugar, 150 g butter, 180 g flour, 50 g ground almonds, pinch of cinnamon and about 1.5 tsp baking powder.
Preheat oven to 200 C. 'Knead' all ingredients together for nice elastic dough, then roll, cut and bake around 10 minutes (until golden).

Ball of dough before rolling

I used star cookie cutter, but you can use any kind you want.

Cooling down :)

Use jam or chocolate cream between cookies, place on each other as shown above and sprinkle with icing sugar.

Enjoy with tea or coffee!
