Culinary Arts - German Christmas Cookies - Butterplätzchen

Join Andrea Meyer, a native German, and learn how to bake authentic German Christmas cookies. You will receive her Oma’s recipe, learn how to create these amazing cookies and take home freshly bakes goodies to share with your family. In Germany, these cookies are only baked for Christmas. They are much thinner than the butter cookies in the US and are created in shapes like stars, bells, moons, Christmas trees etc. The fun part is to decorate them with sugar sprinkles, almond slivers or chocolate. Please bring a to-go container, an apron and a $10 supply fee, which is payable to the instructor at the beginning of class.
