German Cookies very easily baked

Sweets in Winter

The Christmas season lures again at all corners with winter delicacies and hardly anyone can resist!

Those who need an alternative to the Christmas Market and like to give free rein to their creativity in a relaxed atmosphere will find themselves together at home and bake their own Christmas goodies.
We’ve found out what typical cookie recipes are in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern / Germany and came across four interesting ones while reading the books.

Vorpommern Cinnamon Cookies

  • 150g flouer
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 package vanilla sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 dash of lemon aroma


Cream the butter with sugar, vanilla sugar and the egg. Then mix the flour with the baking powder and cinnamon well and stir with the butter mixture to a dough. We used twice the amount of flour, because the mass was much too thin. Roll out the finished dough thinly, cut out the cookies and then bake at medium heat until golden yellow.

Ingredients Dough

  • 400g flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon potpocket
  • 1 teaspon salt of deer horn or backing powder
  • 1 small bag of cinnamon
  • 1,5 sachets of gingerbread spice
  • 1 glass of syrup
  • 250g margarine
  • 1 cup of sugar

Ingredients chocolate icing

  • 250g hard grease (Palmin)
  • 3 tablespoon cocoa
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 heaped tablespoons powdered sugar


Mix the syrup with the soft margarine and sugar well, so that the mixture becomes thin. Then add the rest of the ingredients for the dough and mix it well. Spread the finished mixture on a well greased baking tray. Bake the dough at medium heat for about 1/2 hour. Let the dough cool down and prepare the chocolate icing at the same time.
Heat up and liquefy the hard fat, add the remaining ingredients and mix well until a uniform mass is formed. Then cover the gingerbread with the chocolate icing.

In addition to our traditional north german culinary delights, we found other delicious things and of course tried them out.

Sea Buckthorn Cookies

Found on the blog Jessis Schlemmerkitchen with many recipes. Among them was this interesting recipe with sea buckthorn. And because so much sea buckthorn grows here on the Baltic Sea coast this is a very good idea.
But we also bought the sea buckthorn filling rather than preparing it ourselves 😉


  • 300g flour
  • 300g almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 300g soft butter
  • 100g powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon ground vanilla
  • 150g sea buckthorn fruit spread


Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Roll out the dough flat and cut out with cookie cutters. Remember to use the same mould for the top and bottom.  Bake the upper and lower half separately until golden brown in the oven at medium heat and then let it cool down. Put the sea buckthorn spread thinly on the lower half of the cookie and place the upper half, with the hole at best, on top.

Christmas cake with marzipan and sea buckthorn

And still another recipe for the veganer and glow-free we could find! Found at Emilie’s Treats with delicacies for head and body.

  • 70g ground almonds
  • 60g linseed flour
  • 120g buckwheat flour
  • 120g brown sugar
  • Vanilla
  • 40g rape oil
  • 60g coconut oil
  • 5-6 tablespoons cold nut milk
  • 225g – 250g sea buckthorn jam

Ingredients Marzipanfilling

  • 250g marzipan
  • 70g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegan fat or one protein


Mix the dry ingredients for the dough. Knead with the oil, coconut oil and milk to a dough. Put in a cool place. Grease muffin tins – alternatively, silicone tins can be used. Form about 30g of dough each into a tartlet nest. To do this, shape the dough into a ball, press it flat, place it in the mould and press up one edge with your fingers. Refrigerate briefly once again. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Beat the marzipan with sugar and fat or egg white until soft. Put about one spoonful of sea buckthorn jam on the bottom of each tartlet.
Fill a piping bag with the marzipan mixture and squirt even circles. Finish off with a star, which is achieved by pressing it firmly into the mixture. Bake the tartlets for 15-20 minutes until golden yellow.
