We put out our shoes on the eve of the 5th, and sure enough, they were filled with goodies on the morning of the 6th, including some tasty candies, a holly tree, a glass Christmas tree, and a Feuerzangenbowle set. We spent most of the weekend baking Christmas cookies. We made our favorites – peppernuts, spritz cookies, sugar cookies, and chocolate mint delights. We put together a number of cookie plates, and shared them with neighbors and friends. The Germans really seem to like the “green cookies”. Spencer’s favorite are the chocolate mint delights, which seem to be the least favorite among the Germans.
