For the cookie dough

  • 60 g ground almonds
  • 60 g dark chocolate
  • 150 g softened butter
  • 150 g icing sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 150 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp STROH 80


For the icing

  • 200 g powdered sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp STROH 80 or STROH 60



  • For the cookie dough, mix softened butter, sugar, and egg white with a whisk.
  • Grate the chocolate, fold in flour, salt, and STROH, and mix until a homogeneous dough forms. Chill the dough.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C fan.
  • Roll the dough into two long round pieces with a diameter of approximately 4 cm (1.6 inches). Chill for 30 minutes.
  • Cut 5 mm (0.2 inches) thin slices of dough with a knife and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently press down. Tip: For particularly nice sandwiches, roll the dough thinly, cut out with a round cookie cutter, and halve into two crescents.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes until the sandwiches are crispy. Then remove from the hot baking sheet and let cool.
  • For the glaze, mix egg yolk, water, STROH, and powdered sugar with a whisk until a spreadable glaze is formed. Add more liquid or sugar as needed.
  • Spread the glaze on the sandwiches with a knife. Let dry for several hours at room temperature.
