The internet is full of precious, delicious cookies, and German cookies top the list as some of the most coveted cookies during Christmas time. German cookies are traditionally made in most houses during Advent time.
Advent is the time, 4 Sundays before Christmas, where we tend to focus on a more quite merry period of the year. It’s like a meditation where we bake and prepare treats for our family and friends.
You might know some German cookies without having known that they are from Germany originally, because they are that common by now. In fact some can be found in popular coffee shops and malls all over the world!
In India you will be able to get German cookies in most German bakeries such as in Anjuna and Pune. In fact at times you get, unexpectedly of course, spritz cookies in some road side chai shops or lebkuchen in a supermarket.
German cookies are sometimes not only German but also at the same time Austrian.
The two countries share a lot of common food dishes, due to their closer ties in the past, but both of course, Austrians and Germans, have a similar taste choice and both can call a few food recipes their collective own.
However, there are certain Austrian cookies which are known as authentically Austrian, such as the Linzer cookies, known as Linzeraugen. Also Elisenlebkuchen cookies are very Bavarian/German as well!
Anyhow, if you want to get to know German culture a little more or if you want to impress somebody in your midst or just make your loved once happy with a sweet cookie bite, then the German cookie roundup will be a keeper and you can save it for the next days or simply for the years to come.
