Christmas is coming, everyone’s busy preparing for this traditional festival. People around the world are decorating, buying gifts, writing Christmas cards and preparing traditional cuisine. People gather and have a special Christmas family meal is traditionally an important part of the holiday celebration. It’s well known what will we have to finish with a hearty roast and a stiff drink: dessert.
By the Middle Ages, the ingredients like sugar, lard and butter are expensive delicacies to cooks. Families could only afford treats like these on the most important holiday. Unlike pies and cakes, cookies/biscuits could be easily shared and given to friends and neighbors. In the 17th century, the Dutch brought the eariliest Christmas cookies to America. Later in the early 20th century, U.S. dealers were importing decorated Lebkuchen cookies from Germany to be used as presents.
I guess everyone is indulging in festival baking. Every Christmas, the smell of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg spreads through the house. It’s the Christmas biscuits that have the house filled with the gorgeous scent of spices. Here are 5 popular Christmas biscuits around the world:
Gingerbread cookies are typically flavored with ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon and sweetened with honey and sugar. They can be of various shapes such as the well-known Gingerbread man I wrote about last year.
Linzer tarts are buttery sandwich cookies with jam filled inside. They originated from the town of Linz in Austria numerous years prior, where they were called Linzertorte. The small cut-out on the top of the cookie creates a lovely stained-glass-window effect.
Chocolate Crinkles are black and white cookies with a crinkled surface. To gain the crinkled effect, chocolate dough balls are rolled in powdered sugar. As the cookies bake, they spread and causing the sugar to crack and reveal the chocolate underneath.
Snickerdoodles are classic cookies that originated from Germany. Also known as snipoodles or cinnamon sugar cookies. They are soft and chewy, young kids love forming the dough into balls and rolling them in cinnamon-sugar before baking.
Cut-out sugar cookies
Cut-out sugar cookies are easy DIY cookies. We could cut cookie dough into different shapes we like with cookie cutters. Moreover, we could decorate cookies in any color we like with a mixture of powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.
