Preparation of dough for Cognac Cookies Recipe                     

Fill the dough in a decoration bag and attach a tip with a hole 1,2-1,5 cm (0.5-0.6 in) in diameter. Press rolls about 13-15cm (5-6 in) or form the rolls with your hands. Close the rolls to a ring and connect both ends. Place the rings on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Spread chopped almonds on top of each ring and slightly press the almonds into the dough.


Preheat the oven to 175-190°C (350-375°F) and bake the Cognac Cookies on the middle rack for 10-12 minutes. Let the Cognac rings completely cool out on the baking sheet before placing them on a plate. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
