There are tons of ways to make delicious Dutch cookies, but this buttery cookie recipe is one that's near and dear to us, since it was one that a dear Oma (that's grandma!) shared with us. These cookies are lightly spiced and topped with crunchy nuts and colorful chocolate candies to make 'em taste even better!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup colored nonpareils

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 10- x 15-inch rimmed cookie sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, and egg yolk. In another large bowl, combine flour and cinnamon; stir it into butter mixture. Using your hands, pat dough into pan.
  3. In a small bowl, beat water and egg white until frothy; brush it over dough, then sprinkle top nuts and nonpareils.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden. Cut immediately into finger-like bars.


Make sure to use the nonpareils found in the baking section, not the candy section, of your grocery store.

We call them 100's and 1,000's.

1 stick of butter is 4 oz. at 4 sticks to a pound.

nonpareils are also sprinkles or jimmies as many call them

I think "jimmies" are the soft, tiny tube-shaped sprinkles, not these crunchy round sprinkles. They come in colors too, but I see them most often in chocolate.

I really wish there was a picture of all finished receipes on this web site...It would answer a lot of product questions......

I also wish this and other recipes had pictures.

how much in grams or ounces is 1 stick

8 ounces- 8 tablespoons 226.8 grams

One (1) stick of butter is 4ounces, or 1/4 cup.It is marked/calibrated on the wrapper. 2 sticks is 1/2 cup.

sorry-one (1) stick=8 TBSP= 1/2 cup/113Grams.

Nonpareils are the tiny colored balls in the baking aisle, often used to top sugar cookies. The chocolate disc ones are candy with the tiny balls on top (yummy but not for this recipe).

I don't know what you mean by nonpareils

They are small chocolate disc's sprinkled with small white candy balls.
