How to prepare:
Stir the butter soft in a bowl and mix with sugar and eggs to a smooth mass.
Sift the flour with the salt into the bowl and knead to a soft dough.
Chop the hazelnuts very small and add with crushed anise seed, ginger powder and cinnamon to the dough. Knead well.
Roll the dough, on a flour dusted work surface, to a sheet of 1 cm thick. Cut the dough into strips of 4 cm long and 2 cm wide.
Preheat the oven to 150°C/300°F (fan oven 135°C/275°F)
Grease a baking sheet and fill with the cookies. Bake the dūmpkes about 25 minutes.
Let cool on the baking sheet, but first push the still warm cookies with your thumb (hot!) a little flat.
