Beautiful, delicious and nearly impossible to pronounce (try to say weihnachtsplätzchen three times fast), the buttery cookies are deliciously festive and worth adding to your cookie platter. Here, our best recipes for classic German Christmas cookies.
I got this recipe from my grandmother who got it from her grandmother. She had to translate it and then figure out measurements. The original recipe called for "enough flour to make a dough". Thankfully grandma knew what kind of dough.
My favourite German Christmas Cookies (Spitzbuben Cookies) in two yummy variations: A buttery & tender Macadamia & Sour Cherry Sandwich Cookie or a boozy Black Forest Cookie with Almonds and a tart black forest jam!
So many of my happiest childhood memories involve making and eating traditional German Christmas cookies. I’ve opened up my family recipe book to share my favorite cookies with you. I hope you’ll enjoy them during the holidays.
