Traditional christmas cookies

by seedpods

My family has made this kind of cookie for my entire life. My mother tells me that it was a recipe of my German-Swiss great grandmother, who used to make it without the coloring and decoration. Now, that’s not as fun, and when my mom was a kid, she and my grandmother altered the recipe. I’d include the recipe, but it’s a family secret! We call them gebachenis, which my mom thinks is Swiss for baked cookie or something like that. I hope you all are having a good holiday season.
