German Christmas Cookies are counted as some of the best in the world and there is a choice of cookies out there, but of course there are German Christmas cookies that you must try before any other!
Want to know which ones?
Find out further below which are the most popular cookies in Germany right now during Christmas time.
The Internet is full of precious, delicious cookies, and German Christmas 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 Christmas cookies without having known that they are actually German, because they have become popular all over the world.
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.
At the same time, Elisenlebkuchen cookies for example, are very Bavarian/German christmas cookies and you can’t call those Austrian cookies.
Anyhow, if you want to learn more about German culture 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 christmas cookie roundup will be a keeper and you can save it for the next days or simply for the years to come.
