Oma Kiener's Hazelnut Christmas Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2014
My great-grandma always made these cookies, not with hazelnuts but with (yuck) walnuts. These didn't taste like hers, but it's only because my great-grandmother made her own butter from raw milk in a churn. So, it's very different taste than anyone is used to. lol

I agree with those whom were impressed by them, and disagreed with those that felt they were too bland, or lacked 'specialness'. I think sometimes we Americans feel shortchanged if we don't get all the bells and whistles, or if every lily isn't gilded; gastronomically speaking. On my perfect Christmas cookie platter, there are the 'fancy', rich, or showy ones, and then the 'plainer', simple, or unadorned ones. There is a place for both, I think, and I thought these were wonderful. It reminded me of a part of what best about German cooking. Thank you Oma Kiener, and Oma Keiner's children!

Initially I felt these cookies were a little on the bland side eventhough my whole family liked them. I did however make a few changes to the recipe. First, the dough was too dry, so I added 2 TB of milk. Secondly, I could not find ground hazelnuts, so I tried to ground whole ones in my blender, but ended up with powdered hazelnuts. If I'd had larger pieces I think these would have been better. Lastly I frosted the cookies with Nutella which seemed to help a lot.

These were good but lacked the specialness of a Christmas cookie. Thanks for sharing.
