10 Best German Christmas Cookie Recipes

10 best german christmas cookies

Every year in Germany from November to December you can find the most delicious cookies in bakeries and super markets all over the nation. In my opinion Germany has the best selection of Christmas cookies and you can get such cookies only at specific German stores in the USA.
But the good thing is you can bake all these nice cookies at home. All the recipes on this website are authentic and original German.
This time of the year I got inspired to write about the 10 best German Christmas cookie recipes because I am very passionate about baking Christmas cookies. It’s fun to bake and create a selection of different cookies that are presented on a festive plate on Christmas Eve, the actual beginning of German Christmas. It’s also the evening when gifts are exchanged. There are more cookie recipes on the website but I am sure you will love this selection. Happy Baking!
