Have you had Gingerbread Cookies? A European tradition or addiction?
Well I admit it I am a Gingerbread Cookie Addict. I look forward every year when Trader Joe’s brings the two types of Gingerbread Cookies, one that are covered with dark chocolate and the other with the glazed sugar. I have introduced Diane to it many years ago and she looks forward to it as much as I do.
Gingerbread cookies are around all year in Hungary, I remember eating them at every function you can imagine, weddings, birthdays, Easter and of course at Christmas. Most of the cookies were a piece of art and you almost did not want to ruin it by eating it. Never the less once you tasted them your concept of preserving the art work went out the window.
Now with that said Austria and Germany have them all year around and having lived in all three countries. It was such a loss not to enjoy Gingerbread Cookies all year around.
Then luckily, I found them at Trader Joe’s a while ago,( keep in mind TJ’s is a German Company now)😊! Sadly they only bring the cookies during the Christmas Holidays. So, I bulk up and reluctantly share them with Diane during the Christmas Holidays.
If you have an opportunity to visit Budapest around Christmas you will see vendors selling Gingerbread Cookies all over the Christmas Market. Unlike the German Counter Parts the Hungarians decorate them with traditional ornamental icing of various colors.
I am including a couple of links for your convenience to see and enjoy them visually. Now if that inspired you then run to Trader Joes before the season is over. Let me know how you liked them!
