Almond Pretzels (Mandelplaetzchen)
These cookies are fun to make and very tasty. Shaping them takes some practice but they'll still be edible even if they aren't perfectly put together.
Mix 2 1/4 teaspoons butter with a scant 1/4 cup yogurt for a substitute to the sour cream if desired.
A mouli grater works well for chopping the almonds.
