Homemade French Alsatian Christmas cookies with the taste of vanilla. These cookies can already be made in the beginning of November and kept in a tin box with baking paper before being served around Christmas. However, it is unlikely that these small delicious treats will last that long!
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 Alsatian bredeles are one version of the sand cookies, but with a taste of peanut butter. You can use whatever baking from as you prefer.
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...
