Merry Christmas from Germany!
Christmas is the time for yummy cookies, tasty punch and delicious dinners. We asked our colleagues to reveal their favourite Christmas recipes.
On December 15th, Mareike Janßen (Coordinator Online Marketing, Corporate Communications @ Mitsubishi Electric Germany), tells us how she gets in the mood for Christmas.
“For all chocolate and nougat lovers, these are the right cookies here in the case and for me you belong to the Christmas season in any case.”
100g soft butter
200g nougat (cut into pieces)
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 packet vanilla sugar
1 Pinch of salt
// Knead the butter and the nougat until it is very cremy.
// Add the egg, the vanilla sugar and the salt and mix everything.
// Mix the flour and the baking powder and add those slowly to the nougat mixture.
// Form the dough into a ball and wrapped in fresh foil for 30 min. in the refrigerator
// Part the dough into two pieces and roll each out 3-5 mm thick.
// Bake the finished cut-out cookies at 160° convection oven for 10 min.
// After cooling down, decorate the cookies with the melted cuverture and let them dry.
