A family favourite recipe that's been passed down through the generations. Sweet, indulgent biscuits, spiced with cinnamon and the mild nutty taste of almonds.
Bless you for submitting this recipe. My aunt willed me her 100 yr. old German cookie mold but took her recipe to the grave. I think this is very close to the cookies I remember eating as a child. I loved them! It worked out quite well with the hand carved mold as long as the dough was kept cold. A little additional flour improved the detail of the mold designs. I never knew the name of the cookie until now, but believe the spelling would be Weinachstollen. - 03 Jan 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Almost like those windmill cookies you can buy in the store. However I still felt like it was missing a little something? I think it maybe a bit of salt, because these are not very sweet. Maybe a touch of salt would make the sweetness pop out a little. - 02 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Thank you!! These taste almost exactly like my Grandma Wagner's cookies. I know she used lard. My cookbook from her calls them "Weihnachtstrollen" - 09 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
