German Christmas Cookies

Oh my, I do enjoy Traditional German Christmas Cookies. We would bake some, however most we would certainly receive from my Opa. You see, each year he would send us a massive bundle, wrapped in brownish paper as well as linked with twine … we ‘d open it up and also find a treasure of Cookies (Pltzchen), and Chocolates (Schokolade). Mama would certainly maintain a plate with a few of them on the coffee table initially of December (well, the first Sunday of Advent) till the 12th Day of Christmas … January 6th. As well as on Christmas Eve she would certainly fill out a Bunte Teller for each people! The most effective German Christmas cookies are often filled with spices like cinnamon or ginger, as well as stand up well. Cookies like Lebkuchen, Spekolatius, Springerle, Vannile Kipferl, Pfeffernusse, and also Zimt Sterne. (Translation- Gingerbread, Cinnamon Almond Molded Cookies, Molded Anise Cookies, Vanilla Crescents, Peppernuts and also Cinnamon Stars).

To me … the spicy cinnamon scent of cookies is Christmas.
