Kipferl

Growing up I was always a big fan of cookies and milk, such a sweet & simple treat that just seems to go together naturally.

My most fond memories are from when I got to help make them from scratch, but there are other times that I just remember going to the hair salon with my Grandma, where her hairdresser always had a tin of Danish butter cookies. My Grandma would sit under the hair dryer and send me over to get her a small cup of black coffee and some cookies. I always skipped the coffee until I got a little older and realized just how delicious a heavily creamed & sweetened cup of coffee could be.

While helping out in the front of the store last week, I happened to look up from where I was cashiering and across from me was our variety of Bahlsen cookie boxes.

Now when I say variety I mean it, there are some that are chocolate coated, dipped, some with crème filling, and others with fruits. There are crispy cookies and soft cookies; Bahlsen seems to have made it their goal to offer something to fulfill every particular cookie craving a person could have.

While I do love the options available, my heart got set on the Kipferl. In the trademark blue Bahlsen box it is a simple and plain looking cookie in the shape of a crescent.  The next morning I grabbed box and a fresh cup of piping hot coffee and took a seat at my desk. Since it was still early it was really nice to sit and enjoy a little peace before preparing for the day.  Just as I had expected the cookies have a delicious slightly buttery taste, and the only real sweetness comes from the light bit of sugar on the outside.

Made with finely chopped bits of hazelnuts it really blows pecan sandies out of the water.  They were moist and delicious and went so well with my coffee; it was just a wonderful treat and a fantastic start to my morning.
