More Than 20 Seasonal Cookies

Plätzchen backen

I learned recently that it is common in Germany to serve a plate full of Christmas cookies on the first of advent (this year on November 27th). I know, this is different than in the U.S. Christmas is already full in force here as we don’t have Thanksgiving. So I figured I would show you more than 20 cookie recipes to choose from. I decided to pick unusual recipes, recipes you haven’t tried yet, many of them from the U.S., but also from Latin America and some German ones that are not that common. I hope you find some to your liking.

#1 Brownie cookies from the U.S.

#4 Snickerdoodles from the U.S.

    Ich kenn es definitiv auch so, dass man den plätzchenteller zu Weihnachten auf den Tisch stellt, nicht im Advent. Im Advent backe ich und probier auch mal ein paar, aber die Plätzchen sind für Weihnachten….
