Plätzchen backen

Advent started today with the traditional “Plätzchen backen” – baking Christmas biscuits garnished with coloured or chocolate sprinkles, or with grounded almonds.

The dough is a mixture of flour, baking powder, sugar, butter and an egg, and is left to cool in the fridge before being rolled out and cut into the shapes. These are then coated with egg before the topping is added and baked for around 10 minutes.
