“These traditional German cookies are very easy to make and taste delicious. They are also rather light for a cookie, so you can enjoy a few more. ;) If you feel like it, try out other nuts in place of hazelnuts or maybe grated coconut.”

  3. Fold in the ground nuts using a rubber spatula or a tabelspoon.
  4. Drop macaroons by tbs onto a paper-lined cookie sheet leaving some space in between as they will spread.
