Advent/Christmas/Festive Holiday Recipe Links

October, November, December and even January are devoted to baking and making much loved traditional food and drink recipes, for all of Germany´s different holiday season celebrations.

'Three Kings Day' Cake Recipe star
Dreikoenigstag, Epiphany, brings to an end the Christmas season and in Germany one of many traditions for the day is enjoying a piece of King's Cake, with the 'crowning' of whoever is the 'Lucky One' and finds a Christkind figure, or dried white bean, in their portion.

Authentic German Gingerbread Recipe star
German Lebkuchen makes delicious spicy ginger cookies, Valentines Day or Oktoberfest Hearts, a Witches Cottage, Gingerbread Men, spicy Halloween Ghosts, Christmas decorations, a Lantern giving light and aroma, but whatever you create with this Gingerbread recipe it will always be delicious.

Feuerzangenbowle, a Traditional Hot Punch Recipe star
Germany’s Feuerzangenbowle, Flaming Fire Tongs Punch, made with red wine, rum and sugar flambé, is not only a traditional Christmas and New Year’s drink but a favorite throughout the winter and holiday season.

German Caramelized Almonds Recipe star
Caramelized Almonds, freshly cooked from a festival or street side stall or made at home. Delicious candied almonds enjoyed throughout the year, but during Advent not only the air at Weihnachtsmaerkte is filled with the aroma of Gluehwein and Gebrannte Mandeln, they are an unbeatable combination.

German Christmas Cookie Recipes star
Vanilla Crescents and Cinnamon Stars are two of the most popular Weihnachts plaetzen. Traditional "Holiday Cookies", or Weihnachtskekse, which are a central and indispensable part of a Christmas in Germany.

German Nut Cookie Recipes star
For anyone who likes nuts here are two quick, simple and delicious cookie recipes. Classics from "Oma's kitchen" they are favorites found on any dish of German "Weihnachtsplaetzchen", Christmas Cookies, but are enjoyed all year round.

German Specialty, Roast Goose Recipe star
"Koelner Martinsgans" is a delicious St. Martin's Goose specialty from Cologne. Roast Goose, Red Cabbage and Dumplings are enjoyed from autumn onwards, not only for the Christmas, New Year's Eve and St. Martin's Day festivities, and here is a recipe with the traditional side dishes.

Gluehwein and More - Holiday Drink Recipes star
Cold weather in Germany means traditional warming winter drinks, but not only for Weihnachten and New Year with its timeless combination of "Gluehwein" and "Christmas/New Year". From Gluehwein and Punch to Pharisaeer there are so many, and here are a few to try, with the Pharisaeer legend.

Speculaas, the Original 'Airline Cookie' recipe star
Speculaas are spiced caramelized cookies found everywhere in Germany, from accompanying that 'cup of coffee' at the hair stylists to a pavement café. But they have been part of St. Nicholas and Christmas holiday traditions for centuries, long before they became known as the less spicy 'Biscoff'.

Traditional German Christmas Cookie Recipes star
Weihnachts Plaetzchen, another of Germany’s Christmas traditions. Holiday cookie recipes vary from region to region and family to family, but few homes will be without their favorite Weihnachtskekse for Advent and Christmas. Here are "Pots of Love" and "Coconut Chocolate Macaroons" recipes.

Weckmann, A Bread Man Recipe star
In German speaking countries no St. Martin's Day or St. Nicholas celebration would be complete without a traditional sweet yeast dough "Bread Man". It is a holiday specialty called a Stutenkerl, Nikolaus or Weckmann depending on the region and here is its "story" with a recipe.
