3. Bake in a pre-heated 325-350° oven for 10-15 minutes or until breadlike. Remove cookies and let cool.

4. Meanwhile, mix Confectioner’s sugar with lemon juice to form a paste. Frost cookies.



Trout Fillet with Forest Mushrooms

The lake trout “swims across” national borders and makes itself at home in deep, oxygen-rich lakes: in northern Russia, in Scandinavia, in the Baltic states, in Iceland. And of course, in Austria’s lakes. The sea trout is truly a globetrotter. In past times, it was the main fish to be found in Austrian lakes such as the Weissensee or the Millstätter See. And it is a great favourite with Austrian chefs and gastronomes. There’s very good reason for which the sea trout is the “Austrian Fish of the Year 2013”.


Pasties with Sheep Cheese

The traditional Slovak dishes are most commonly referred to as gnocchi with sheep cheese (Bryndzové halušky), sheep cheese (Bryndzové pirohy) and other dishes produced using traditional methods.The sheep cheese is a soft salty cheese made of sheep’s milk with a strong aroma and taste. Like Bryndzové halušky, Bryndzové pirohy is a characteristic Slovak dish that belongs to traditional Slovak specialties. The recipe is quite simple. The preparation procedure, however, is quite different and we can distinguish them reliably by sight and taste.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups unpeeled almonds, coarsely grated
