We asked pastry chef and popular reality show judge Karim Merdjadi for a recipe that anyone can make at home. Get ready for the scent of cinnamon to fill your home (and for you to have to repeat the preparation process very soon).


  • 65 g finely ground almonds
  • 22 g cinnamon
  • 100 g sugar
  • 4 g baking powder
  • 188 g flour
  • 32 g ground hazelnuts
  • pinch of salt
  • 135 g butter
  • 135 g dark chocolate / chocolate chips
  • 1 egg
  • 4 g liquid vanilla


In a mixer bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. Add softened butter and mix until you get a sandy texture, then fold in roughly chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips. Next, add the egg and liquid vanilla, and mix until you have a homogeneous mixture. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F).

Shape the dough into balls, place them on a baking sheet, and gently flatten them. Bake for approximately 12 minutes at 160°C (320°F). The exact time may vary depending on the size of the cookies.
