Today we’re back with another recipe for traditional German Christmas cookies. These biscuits are a little more fiddly, but still very easy to make. It’s our black and white Christmas cookies. What’s in a name? Schwarz-Weiß-Gebäck, or black and white…
Terraces – or Terrassen in German – are my favourite German Christmas biscuit because of their more subtle flavours. They are fun and easy to make with kids and somehow, kinda special.
Zimtsterne or cinnamon stars are arguably the quintessential German Christmas biscuit. They look like snow coloured stars and all that cinnamon makes them smell and taste that just screams Christmas. They are the perfect addition to our trio of German Christmas biscuits.
The Christmas markets are opening this weekend. The temperature is dropping. It’s time to get baking. At least that is what most German housewives seem to think. And what better way to start our trio of German Christmas cookies than with our family favourite: Spritzgebäck.
