Vanilla, Cinnamon and Almond Slivers - Christmas Bakery in Europe

Vanille, Zimt und Mandelsplitter - Weihnachtsbäckerei in Europa

A «biscuit treasure hunt» through Central Europe is well worthwhile. Christmas in Switzerland would be impossible to imagine without the so-called »Zimtsterne«, star-shaped cookies with cinnamon fl avour. In Znaim, in the Czech Republic, the traditional Christmas cookies are glazed with white fondant. The dough for the «biscuit doughnut» from Trento is not kneaded, but stirred, and the biscuits are not cut out but instead piped onto the baking tray and decorated with candied tropical fruits. In Trieste, spices and lots of chocolate make the «Dolci» into an Advent delicacy. Shortbread biscuits in Hanover and the incomparable The so-called Viennese »Vanillekipferl«, sand tarts with a good vanilla fl avour, are the final destinations in this pre-Christmas biscuit tour throughout Europe.
