Brunsli cookie recipe

The delicious Brunsli cookies according to Sprüngli’s house recipe – for a sure success:

Makes approx. 100-120 Brunsli cookies:

600 g of almonds unskinned ground
300 g sugar
300 g cane sugar, finely ground    
50 g cocoa powder
2 egg whites from medium-sized eggs
1.5 dl water 
0.2 dl kirsch
250 g dark chocolate, 75% cocoa

This is how it’s done:

Mix the ground almonds with sugar, cane sugar, cocoa powder and egg whites. After that, melt chocolate with water in a bain-marie and mix in kirsch. Add the chocolate-kirsch mixture to the almond-sugar mixture and knead to an even dough. Cover the finished dough and place somewhere cool for 1 hour.

Evenly roll out the dough between grease-proof paper until it is 1 cm thick. In conclusion, sprinkle the surface of the dough with sugar crystals, cut out the Brunsli with the cookie cutter and place on a cookie sheet with baking parchment. Preheat the oven to 220 °C, and bake the Brunsli on the middle rack for about 5-6 minutes. Let cool off on cookie sheet, cool completely on cake rack.

Tip from a pro:

For an irresistible taste, after adding the egg whites mix in a hint of bitter-almond oil.
