The History of Christmas Baking 💫
The origin of baking Christmas cookies lies quite a bit further back in our past. Long before families began the custom of baking Christmas cookies as tree decorations, cookies and Christmas breads were made in monasteries at Christmas long before in the Middle Ages.
In this way, the feast day of Christ's birth was to be honored. At the same time, the monks wanted to express their wealth, because the ingredients were expensive, and the normal population could not afford them. Most of the typical Christmas baked goods date back to this time. Presumably, they were distributed to the poor population after the church service.
As the holidays are just around the corner, and I would like to share my favorite cookie recipe, in case you still want to fill your cookie jar (or refill it as it is already empty).
Have you already tried Christmas cookies? Which one is your favorite? 😋
