This has become my top cookie decoration technique, it’s fun, the results are beautiful, it doesn’t add sugar to the cookies, the cookies stay crispy, and it’s done once the cookies are out of the oven.
With a little prep work away from little busy hands, this was a good activity for our 2 year old who’s now 3. Also includes how to make a DIY compass/circle template.
A family recipe – Bunten Stuten appears to mean Colourful (sweet) Bread, similar recipes in English are called Fruit Bread. I don’t know how true this is to Bunten Stuten in Germany, instead of yeast, baking soda is used to leaven. This was a Christmas breakfast tradition growing up in our house. As I’m not a fan of raisins, I’ve swapped them for glace cherries and candied ginger.
