Two More German Cookies

Now playing: Gloria Estefan - Christmas Through Your Eyes

Two cookies for the price of one! Cookies five and six come from Germany and made by Lucie.

Haselnuss Makronen and Lebkuchen

Haselnuss Makronen - Hazelnut Macroons

Another cookie that many German people remember and enjoy at Christmas!


The different regions of Germany have different recipes for this traditional Christmas cookie. Much like gingerbread, it is either soft textured, like Lucie's pictured. There is a more hard/brittle version of the cookie that is decorated with icing with words written out. I saw that kind at the German Christmas Market in Birmingham, England a few years ago.

"Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart." ~Washington Irving
