Looking for more Christmas cookies to make this year? Are you baking cookies as Christmas gifts, for parties or just to have on hand?
You will find rolled cookies that are iced in the same manner as the traditional sugar cookies. There are crescent shape cookies, spice cookies, dropped coconut cookies, butter cookies, sandwich cookies, jelly filled cookies, nut based candies like the sandies, and shortbread cookies on the list of German Christmas cookies.
The German Christmas cookie recipes I have found can be made for any of the reasons I asked about above. They can be made for any reason you have for wanting to make Christmas cookies.
It doesn’t matter if you aren’t of a German heritage because when it comes to Christmas and cookies, I believe those two things are something everyone has in common. Almost everyone loves the spirit of Christmas and what it stands for. The same thing can apply to cookies too.
I would just about bet if you were to put one person from every religious, non religious sect, and from every race creed and color and asked them about Christmas and cookies, you would have a wide variety of answers. You may also find, even if they all don’t agree on Christmas, they all have at least one favorite cookie.
Some may have a favorite sandwich cookie. Some may have a chocolate version of a cookie. Some may even like ginger style cookies like ginger snaps or ginger bread.
If you were to listen to their conversations on cookies, you may find their is a mixed bag of rolled, cut out, molded, and drop cookies from all the different groups. These German Christmas cookie recipes are no different.
