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.
This Royal chocolate cake is also known as Trianon in French. It has a layers of biscuits, crunchy pralines, and fluffy chocolate mousse covered in cacao powder. It fits all different celebrations but is most appreciated as a birthday treat.
This typical Alsatian homemade hazelnut pie has a thick and crusty pie bottom and needs to rest over the night to get the right consistence. This pie is a good idea as a dessert to end an Alsatian evening after some tarte flambées (which you can also find on this webpage).
