These small Alsatian bredele (Christmas cookies) will bring a nice addition to your Christmas cookie jar this year. There are many different bredele so it is tricky to find just one favorite, and maybe these small coffee cookies will become your new favorite. You can prepare them a few weeks before and keep them in a thin box with a baking paper until it's time to serve them.
Kougelhopf is a dry cake which originates from Alsace in France. It has a brown outside that is covered with icing sugar. The cake is often eaten together with coffee or tea, but can be served at breakfast as well. This is the traditional recipe of the cake with raisins, but other variations with almonds, or fruits can also be found.
Alsatian Christmas cookies (bredele) comes in many variations of shapes and flavors. Every family bake their own cookies and have their own traditions when it comes to these small treats. These chocolate snowballs are crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. I recommend preparing several batches with different chocolate each time, this way they will last longer.
