    On a floured work surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of 2 to 3 mm and cut out any desired shapes.

  • 5)

    Brush the cookies with milk.

    • Optionally: top the cookies with chopped nuts or almonds.
  • 6)

    Bake in the oven for 12 to 14 minutes.

  • 7)

    After baking, the cookies still soft. Therefore, allow the cookies to cool completely.

  • 9)

    Store airtight in a cookie jar.
