A French cheese cake from the region Alsace where the cake is called käsküeche. The bottom is made like a pie bottom and not like the usual cheese cake bottom with biscuits crumbles. It is big, fluffy, and less sweet than the American or English versions. You can add some citron peel in the cake to have a different taste.
This is a fast dish to make in the middle of the week with chicken fillets. To make the chicken tender do not have too high temperature when you fry it. You can prepare other sauces if you do not like garlic, or fry the chicken in a marinade. Another variation to cook the chicken is to put it on the grill.
These are small Alsatian Christmas cookies with a chewy inside and a slightly crispy outside. They taste vanilla and almond and resemble small snowballs in the shape and color. You can prepare them a month before Christmas, keep them in a thin box covered with baking paper and they will still taste newly baked.
