Christmas Cookies Day 1 - Jan Hagel Recipe


Jan Hagel are very popular Dutch almond-flavored cookies that are crisp and buttery with a sliced almond topping. They are good anytime, even during the holiday season where they are a welcome addition to any holiday cookie tray. It’s said that Sinterklauss (St. Nicholas), who brings presents and sweets to Dutch children on the evening of December 5th after they are in bed, is always grateful when he can stop and eat these traditional cookies with a warm beverage. Almost everyone has time to bake these quick cookies, since they start with a homemade Basic Sugar Cookie Mix and are pressed into a sheet pan to make thin bar cookies.

Jan Hagel can be made ahead; they keep a week or two in an airtight container, and can be frozen for months.
