    Das Rezept ist für “Schwarz-Weiss Gebäck“. Wir nehmen den hellen Teig (ohne Rum Aroma) für klassische Weihnachtsplätzchen. Dünn ausrollen, und mit verschlagenem Ei bestreichen, damit die Dekorationen halten. Das Ei gibt auch ohne Dekorationen einen schönen Glanz.

    Jeeun – the decoration actually gets baked, so you can’t use chocolate sprinkles (even m&m’s tend to crack). It all sticks for good thanks to a light brush with whisked egg. If i am not baking with the kids, i actually prefer to use shaved almonds for better taste.
    The recipe (Butter Cookies), as well as another favorite of mine (Perfect Shortbread), are now on our server:
