Dúmkes – little thumb cookies

75 gr. butter

75 gr. hard fat

125 gr. Brown sugar

1 egg

300 gr. flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon aniseed

Sniff of salt

50 gr. Almonds (chopped)

50 gr. hazelnuts (chopped)

1 teaspoon powdered ginger



How to make the dúmkes


Mix the butter, fat (make it soft, but not too warm), sugar and egg to a smooth dough. Well done you! Add the flour to the dough and knead for 15 minutes. Pfew, what an amazing effort. You should reward yourself. Add the cinnamon, salt, aniseed, ginger, and nuts to the dough. Roll the dough to a slab of approximately 1 cm thick, and cut bars from 2×4 cm.  Place these bars onto a greased baking sheet and let the oven do its work for around 25 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius. When the Dúmkes are golden brown, take them from the oven and press them lightly with your thumb at both ends so for their aesthetics.
