This a german recipe. It was my great grandmothers recipe. It brings back memories of going to her house and eating them at christmas.

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. To make the dough: Mix 150g margarine, sugar, eggs, cinnamon, nuts, and 250g flour until you have a smooth dough. Wrap dough into foil and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
