It’s cold and rainy outside and I’m already thinking about Christmassy cookies and warm wine. Too soon? Never.
I also tried my first ever Pumpkin Spice Latte this week. We’ve never had them here in Europe before, but I guess with the advent of social media, the craze has finally worked its way over. My verdict? Pretty good, although a little too sweet. But I’m sure I’ll be trying them again soon, because I’m a glutton for punishment like that.
Because I’m loving all-things spice at the minute, I wanted to make these cute little German spiced hazelnut cookies, which basically taste like Christmas in biscuit form. I’d liken them a lot to a German version of snickerdoodles, but with a little extra “warmth”. And they also smell and taste like chai lattes. So, basically, if you want a big, spiced, warming hug in a cookie, then this recipe is for you.
