  • baking sheet


  • 250 ml heavy cream
  • 40 g all-purpose flour
  • 160 g sugar
  • 160 g mix of almonds peanuts
  • 16 g candied fruit


  • In a medium pan place heavy cream with sugar and flour and whisk well. Cook it on medium heat, until it thickens, sort of b├ęchamel sauce thickness.
  • Remove from heat and add the rest of the ingredients. And let it cool for a few minutes and meanwhile, preheat oven to 160 C.
  • With a help of teaspoon, spoon small cookies on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges becomes golden brown. The top might be still bubbly and white and that is OK. It will harden later.
  • Remove the cookies from the baking sheet and place it onto the baking rack and let dry for 12 hours.
  • Keep in airtight container in a cool place.


Measurement- My inherited Christmas cookies are all in metric system. This is all because of precision of measuring the ingredients. I recommend buying a digital kitchen scale to make sure to achieve the best possible cookies.
Nuts - For this recipe you can use any kind of nuts, from almonds, peanuts, pecans to walnuts. It's all your choice.
