#2 Vanilla croissants: The tender temptation from the mountains

Vanilla croissants are also something really great at Christmas time, especially when they melt on your tongue. It is definitely worth making these biscuits yourself and not buying them ready in the shop.

#3 nut corners: The classic from the baker

Nussecken are not only eaten during the Christmas season, but also throughout the rest of the year. To make these cookies, you should plan on a little more time.

#4 Angel suction with marmalade

Those who prefer biscuits with jam are well served with the recipe for angel sucking. Sweet dough decorated with a marmalade blob. The angel eyes not only look great, they also taste great.

#5 Spekulatius – The Traditional Pastry

Gingerbread has a taste that is immediately recognizable. In the meantime, these biscuits are even processed into ice cream or chocolate bars because so many people like the taste.

#6 Terrace biscuits – Laminated biscuits

Terrace cookies consist of several layers of biscuits. The biscuit layers are held together by jam. The sight of these biscuits alone stimulates the appetite. When it comes to form, you can get creative.

#7 lemon hearts from baking tray

Lemon hearts are sometimes a little alternation between the typical cinnamon treats for Christmas. The preparation is as easy as with a lemon cake.

#8 Coconut macaroons for tropical Christmas

Coconut macaroons contain, as the name suggests, coconut rasp. These biscuits are therefore not something for everyone. With this recipe you could surprise your guests with something that not everyone has eaten yet.

#9 Sprayed biscuits with lots of butter

Shortbread biscuits consist mainly of shortcrust pastry. Only a few ingredients are needed, which you almost always have in your household. These pastries are not only eaten at Christmas time, but also at any other time of the year.

#10 Sandwich biscuits with chocolate coating

Sandwiches are particularly soft and sweet. Still, it’s not hard to prepare. The highlight? One end of the pastry should be dipped in chocolate coating.

FIV wishes you lots of fun baking!
