This is one of the classic Alsatian Christmas cookies called sand bredele. They are named sand bredele because it feels like soft sand when you prepare the dough. It is common to change the taste by adding vanilla, rum, orange, citron, cinnamon or ginger, and you will find them in many different shapes as well.

This recipe is from France , Alsace.
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 is a brioche that is only known and sold in the bakeries in the town Rosheim in the region Alsace in France. It is a Brioche topped with nuts and crème fraiche, which makes it a bit sweeter than the normal brioche. It has a very unique taste typically from this specific town. Can be served as a starter, appetizer or why not bring on a picnic.
This is something between a lasagna and a classic potato gratin. It's easy and quick to prepare, and you have both potato, vegetables and soya mince in the gratin, so you don't need to prepare a side dish. It is possible to change the soya mice to normal minced beef.... but it will not be a vegetarian gratin anymore...
