Jan Hagel Cookies




Preheat oven to 180 °C. Combine flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
Cut the butter into small cubes and add. Rub the flour mix and the butter together between your thumb and forefingers, until it resembles wet sand.

Press dough onto a greased cookie sheet, roughly forming a rectangle. Brush surface with the beaten egg and decorate with almond slivers (chopped almonds) and sugar crystals.

Bake for 30 minutes or until browned.

Using a sharp knife, immediately cut into the desired shapes (squares, rectangles, fingers or diamonds). Leave to cool.
