Christmas cookies & cakes just arrived from Alsace! Do you think I went a bit overboard and ordered too much?🤔 Couldn’t resist: Cinnamon star cookies, Christstollen cake & Beerawecka cake🎂 ( no, there’s no beer in it!) Schwowebredele, Linzer & Spitzbuebe cookies🍪 are Alsatian specialties some of which are only made for the Christmas holidays. They’re ancestral recipes, all variations of spice cookies & cakes some with dried fruit added. I’d never heard of them before moving to France. Any of these sound familiar to you?
