Christmas bear paws

Ingredients (40 bear paws)

  • 200 g flour
  • 90 g icing sugar
  • 80 g milled almonds
  • 160 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 spoons of cocoa powder
  • cinnamon
  • cloves
  • lemon peel

Knead the dough thoroughly, wrap it in the food foil and let rest in the fridge overnight.

Then just press the dough into the candy molds and preheat the oven to 160 °C. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the size of the molds.

After baking while still warm, lightly dust with icing sugar. If you prefer it sweeter, you can roll straight into the sugar.
