munchies for crunchy walnut honey cookies

english
October...colorful autumn leafs, shorter days, cozy knit pullovers, 
and a lot of cookies with a big glass of milk...
The smell of homemade baked goods, flooding through the house.
What could be better?

-----------------------------

deutsch
Oktober...bunte Herbstblätter, kürzere Tage, kuschelige
Strickpullover und eine Menge Kekse, 
natürlich mit einem großen Glas Milch...
Der Duft von selbst gemachten Backwaren durchströmt das Haus.
Was könnte besser sein?




These cookies are just perfect, 
because you can prepare the dough anytime, freeze it, up to
2 month and bake it, whenever you have the munchies for 
something delicious.

-----------------------------

Diese Kekse sind einfach nur perfekt, man kann sie jederzeit 
vorbereiten, bis zu 2 Monaten einfrieren, und sie dann
backen, wenn einen der Heißhunger auf 
etwas Köstliches überkommt.


Walnuts, cinnamon, brown sugar and the special taste of honey make 
these cookies so unbelievable crunchy and tasty.

-----------------------------

Walnüsse, Zimt, Brauner Zucker und der unvergleichliche Geschmack von
Honig machen diese Kekse so unglaublich knusprig und lecker.

    1. Hi, thank you so much. They are really delicious. The package vanilla sugar contains 7-8g. But you can also use a few drops of vanilla extract. It's just about a little vanilla taste:-) If you have more questions, let me know;-) sabrinasue
