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.
