Gifts from the kitchen: oatmeal and almond biscuits - they do not just taste like Christmas

Yes, can that be true, and in less than a week is it already Christmas?!
I actually wanted to publish a million recipes that have accumulated for PAMK and other gnomes. But, of course, I did not want to release them to the Wichtel child until I got them.
And somehow I'm still so much in work mode that I kind of screwed it up.

 Biscuits with oatmeal and almonds as a gift from the kitchen

That's why here comes a really totally simple recipe for crispy-yummy oatmeal cookies with almond pieces. They may look a bit nondescript and boring, but appearances are deceptive - the cookies are incredibly delicious. Delicate and juicy through the oatmeal and at the same time crisp and nutty through the almond pieces.
The ingredients are stirred together quickly and the result is really delicious. Emergency Biscuits, so to speak, on Christmas Eve, you have to bake something for the family gathering on Christmas Day.

 Biscuits with oatmeal and almonds as a gift from the kitchen

Oatmeal & Almond Biscuits

for about 3-4 sheets


175 g soft butter
125 g sieved powdered sugar
2 tl homemade vanilla sugar or Bourbon vanilla sugar
100 g flour
100 g tender oatmeal
150 g chopped, peeled almonds
1 pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 175 ° C top and bottom heat.
Lay out a baking tray with baking paper or a baking foil or baking mat.
Cream butter, powdered sugar and vanilla sugar in the food processor or with the hand mixer. That takes a few minutes. The sugar should have largely dissolved.
Mix flour, oatmeal and almond pieces with a pinch of salt in another bowl, then briefly, but thoroughly, under the butter-sugar mixture stir.
Remove hazelnut-sized pieces of dough and Roll even balls in the palms.
Place the dough balls side by side on the baking sheet with sufficient space between them. They still break apart during baking and thus obtain the shape of the biscuit.
Bake in a preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes - the biscuits should, if at all, brown only slightly. For those who prefer crunchy biscuits, simply leave them in the oven for 2-3 minutes longer.
Remove the finished cookies from the oven and place them carefully on a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
