    Jan Hagel problem, can you help

    I've made this cookies before but it was years ago. I made a batch today and it didn't want to get done and then the top with the almonds pulled away from the cookie bottom. I followed the recipe exactly but haven't had this happen before. Any help from some cookie pros?

      Ha! My first thought was "Who is Jan Hagel?" I am clueless to what it is you are asking.

      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

        I looked up a recipe and it said one egg separated ,using the white to brush the top before adding the nuts. Did you miss that step?

          Jan Hagel

          2 cups all purpose flour
          1 cup sugar
          1 cup Land of Lakes unsalted butter, softened
          1 egg, separated
          1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
          1/2 teaspoon salt
          1 cup sliced almonds

          Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixer bowl combine flour, sugar, butter, egg yolk, cinnamon and salt. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often until well mixed, about 2 to 3 minutes. Divide dough into halves. Press each half onto an un-greased cookie sheet to 1/16th-inch thickness. In small bowl beat egg white with fork until foamy. Brush over dough and sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately cut into 2 inch squares and remove from pan. Cool completely. Makes 3 to 4 dozen (not for me, I get about 12).
          I followed the recipe to the letter and am puzzled that the top separated from the cookie part. I put it back in and cooked it about 5 more minutes but it didn't help. When it cooled it was very tasty but I sure was hoping to give it as gifts!

            No, I did brush the egg white onto the top.

              These look like the Dutch windmill cookies

              The only other things I can think of is to refrigerate the sheet before baking or maybe your cutting them to early or late. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help.

              Maybe cut into shapes and then brush and add the almonds?

                Thanks Lori. I'm stubborn so I'm trying to make another batch today to see if I can get them to turn out right. DH is very happy to eat the batch that fell apart
