Many European countries have their version of the ‘horn cookie’. It is a very simple recipe using flour, butter, and sugar and they usually contain some kind of chopped nuts. The Polish version is a common ‘herbatniki’, or tea cake.

I tried two recipes in the creation of these cookies. The first recipe was from a much referred to Polish cookbook, but the cookies turned out crumbly and flat. The second recipe is a common version I found on many Polish recipe sites. Thank goodness for automatic translation in Google Chrome! Unlike the first recipe, the second had an egg yolk. I also believe in almond extract when an opportunity presents itself.
