German Meringue Cookie Recipe with Pictures

German Christmas Cookies Recipes

This meringue cookie recipe is for hazelnut lovers as it calls for plenty of grounded hazelnuts. All my cookie recipes come with pictures, and these cookies are no exception.

I have plenty of German Christmas cookies recipes since my mom-in-law gave all of hers to me. She had to make sure that I bake plenty of different German Christmas cookies.

meringue cookie recipe These meringue cookies are simple to make, but I recommend buying grounded hazelnuts, not grinding them yourself. I once grounded them myself, and when it came to making them with a deco bag, the nuts clogged my tip.

I guess, my machine didn’t ground them 100% and that significantly made more work in the end. If you buy them grounded you can be sure that the batter will flow through the opening of the tip and you will be able to make the cookies in no time.

I hope that you will enjoy these German Christmas meringue cookies.
