German Christmas Cookies

To make about 60 cookies you will need:

125 g soft butter
200 g sugar
pinch of salt
1 egg
80 g chopped almonds
90 g oats
80 g flour
1 tsp baking powder

Mix the butter, salt, sugar and egg together until creamy.

Add the chopped almonds, oats, flour and baking powder and mix well.

Using the help of 2 teaspoons take small heaps of the oatmeal cookie mixture and place on a lined baking tray. Make sure that you leave enough space between each cookie as they will spread.

Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 190 degrees C for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

Remove carefully (they may break up while still hot) from the baking tray and leave to cool.
