This is the time of the year when Erzgebirgian Arches and the beautiful stars of the Moravian Church shine through our wintery darkness. It’s also high time to start with the Christmas bakery. These dried fruit and oat cookies are equally delicious made with fresh fruit pulp instead of dried fruit. My favourite version? Fresh fruit pulp + raisins!

It’s that very special time of the year. I’m burning pine-scented candles (Annick Goutal Noël are the best!), I’m hanging box wreaths around the house and sipping spice tea whenever I have a quiet moment to spare. During the month of December I want to share with you some German Christmas bakery: the famous Dresdner Stollen, an elegant gold sprinkled chocolate and caramel tart and some easy-to-make pistachio rosewater snowballs.

When two people marry it usually involves a fusion of traditions. Especially in the time of Advent and Christmas I love to go back to a recipe that I learned from my family in law: The Thuringian Stollen!
