Holidays at the Heller’s: Cookies/Kekse

by Corey · 4 comments

My husband baked these the other day.
Do you recognize them?
The ends were dipped in chocolate after this photo was taken.

Can you identify the two important & “magical” ingredients?
They are both hard to find in the United States!

(I found a few packs of one of special ingredient at IKEA the other day,
the other special ingredient we bought during our last visit Germany).

I love having these cookies around for the holidays.
they bring Germany just a little closer during this time of year!

Happy Holidays!

Probably Hefe and…Quark? No. But Quark is one of those things you can’t get in the US. I live in Germany but haven’t made most of the German Plätzchen since I don’t really like them. Stick to sugar cookies :-D.

Now that I’ve read the facebook comments I see I don’t know what I’m talking about. Enjoy the cookies – and Christmas!

THANK YOU for the guess, RC! That is the fun of it! You are totally right about Quark. We can find it in Seattle in some specialty stores but will have to pay an arm and a leg. Sugar cookies are great – my kids LOVE to decorate them. It turns into an all day project, but that is what makes it so fun!

Thank you for your comment and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
