Treat your ingredients with care...

  • European-style butter — Make sure the butter is softened at room temperature for easier creaming with the sugars.
  • Almond extract — Use high-quality almond extract to enhance the Bavarian flavor profile.
  • Ground cinnamon — Adjust the amount of cinnamon according to personal preference for a stronger or milder flavor.
  • Chocolate chips — Opt for high-quality chocolate chips for the best taste and texture.
  • Parchment paper — Using parchment paper on the baking sheet will prevent the cookies from sticking and ensure even baking.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra Bavarian touch, sprinkle some chopped almonds on top of the cookies before baking.
  • If you prefer a softer texture, slightly underbake the cookies and allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate chips, such as dark chocolate or white chocolate, to customize the flavor.
  • To make the cookies extra indulgent, serve them warm with a scoop of Bavarian vanilla ice cream.
  • Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container to maintain their freshness.
