Recipe Details
Jan Hagel cookies are traditionally eaten at Christmas time in Holland. They can be cut into squares, rectangles or diamond shapes, but I actually really like cutting them into fingers to serve with ice cream, mousse or sabayon, or in fact, with a good old cuppa coffee.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg yolk and beat thoroughly. (This should be very creamy.) Add the flour and cinnamon and mix well.
  2. Spread thinly on 1 1/2 cookie sheets. Press down mixture with fingers, then score with a fork. Brush on a film of egg white mixed with a little water. Sprinkle the nuts over the top.
  3. Bake 1/2 hour at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Remove from oven and cut into squares or oblongs. When cold, remove from cookie sheet.

Garnishing Instructions
Sprinkle the nuts over the top.

Serving Instructions
Let cool for 10 minutes.
