Frohe Weihnacht

Merry Christmas everyone, or Frohe Weihnacht as my German Christmas card reads. Pictured on my card among cinnamon sticks and nuts are those pristine little Christmas stars.Though the famed springerle and pfefferneuss usually get most of the attention among our customers, my card certainly highlights almond stars as "star-worthy". Their German name is zimtsterne (cinnamon stars) but for most people it's the almond paste, not the cinnamon, that gives the little cookie it's distinguishing taste. So whether you call them almond stars, cinnamon stars, or zimtsterne, we have what you're talking about. We started making stars the day after Thanksgiving when Christmas was a month away and now the eve is upon us. It's a tedious task making this little German gem, but somehow our Christmas tradition would be lacking without them. "Oh star of wonder, star of light, star of royal beauty bright...westward leading, still proceeding, guide us to the perfect Light". Frohe Weihnacht everyone and may your holiday celebrations be blessed and bright.
