Challenge: Glühweinkekse

A few weeks ago we were asked by the wonderful sisters Thea & Toni Neubauer if we would consider contributing to „Sister Magazine„, a beautiful online magazine! And of course we were thrilled and excited!

Two days ago, the Christmas edition of „Sister Magazine“ was published and the article about us is entitled, „A digital-culinary pen friendship“ (p. 184-193) – which really hits the nail on the head! It is such a nicely written article that we blushed over two continents! Because not only is the idea behind our blog described, how it all happened, and three of our challenges featured, but above that our latest children’s cookbook is featured with three recipes, exclusively for the magazine (p. 26-33)! How awesome is that?!
And the two sisters even publish it in English and German, so all of you can read it! Plus: it’s free of charge! So thank you Thea & Toni for being part of this!

We especially thought of a christmassy recipe, because we knew we would be featured in the last edition of the year. So we made Mulled Red Wine Christmas Cookies (Glühweinkekse)!
And Oh those were good..! Fairly easy to make and so pretty! I made stars and Liz made hearts. What seems obvious, but I didn’t actually realize until I was making them: You need two of the same shapes but in different sizes!

Mulled Red Wine Christmas Cookies
250 g flour
125 g cold butter
1 table spoon of vanilla sugar
75 g sugar
1 pinch salt
1 pinch cinnamon
2 egg yolk

100 ml red wine
100 ml orange juice
2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp granular gelatine

Mix flour, butter, vanilla sugar, sugar, salt and egg yolk. Knead first with a hand mixer, then with your hands. Let rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Prehat oven to 180 C. roll dough on floured surface and cut out cookies. if you want to hang them later on, cut little holes with a straw. Place cookies on a baking tray covered with parchment and bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
Boil up red wine, juice, sugar, cinnamon and gelatin, simmer for a few minutes and let cool. Warm up the jelly and spread on half of the cookies. Top with the other half.

  1. Thanks so much for your words!! We were thrilled to have you in our issue and I had a lot of fun writing the article about the three of you! Hope to meet you again soon (and then actually talk to you @Liz 😉 and perhaps even meeting Jewels one time in the future. I wish both of you a wonderful advent and christmas time! Talk to you soon!
    Yours, Thea

    • A meeting would be great! Maybe it will be sooner than expected?!!

    • Dear Will!
      Thank you so much for your nice comment!
      very honored that you’re following us! 😉

  2. They look really delicious and love the idea of hanging them off the tree – although they wouldn’t last long around my house:)

  3. They both look so delicious and perfect, I had to consider if they are real. 🙂 Like the idea of hanging them off the three or as a gift tag.
