erman almond crescents, originally known as mandelhörnchen are delicious cookies made of marzipan. You can find these sweet bites in most German bakeries, and today, you will learn how easy is to make them at home.
Originally named Mandelhörnchen, these are traditional Christmas sweet bites in Germany. Unfortunately, that is all I can tell you, since I couldn’t find a shred of additional info regarding this dessert anywhere! So, if you know something about the origin of Mandelhörnchen, some fun facts perhaps, or anything else, please, let me know,OK? Now, one thing is certain, and that is a fact that marzipan is the main ingredient of German almond crescents. If you would like to learn more about as such, or how to make some yourself, check my post on this subject.
Now, I’ll be making three types of Mandelhörnchen. First, I’ll make, what I believe is a traditional version of Mandelhörnchen, and than, in versions two and three, I will introduce some untraditional elements like cocoa, orange, cinnamon, white chocolate etc. Also, I will make extra large crescents, but you can make them smaller if you like them like that. I hope that you’ll like my German almond crescents, but even if you don’t, let me know, your feedback is always greatly appreciated! OK, let’s get to work and make some yummy German almond crescents!
