I am so proud to introduce Amalie Loves Denmark who is sharing her lovely Zimtsterne cookies with us. Amalie loves Denmark is a a blog with a focus on Denmark, Danish lifestyle, tips for travel, shopping, recipes, DIYs, products and brands.
“I love Denmark! Ever since my childhood, I have spent my vacation in Denmark, and I have turned my affection into my profession. In our home, there is a lot of Danish design. And I enjoy sharing my passion on my blog and in my books.”
When it comes to Christmas and hygge, we love to bake a whole day long. One Saturday in december we prepare a lot of cookies. We use classic recipes from Denmark or Germany and some new recipes, which I have found in a magazine or on a blog. So that is a hard „working day“ with flour everywhere and of course lots of fun and hygge!
The whole house is smelling fantastic and the cookie jars are filled with sweet treats. It reminds me of the days, when I was young and we baked cookies with my Mother. I love this tradition, and hopefully my kids will continue with the tradition.
One of the classic recipes, we bake every year for Christmas time, are these Cinna- mon stars, mainly because my son loves the smell of cinnamon.
So if you are looking for a recipe with cinnamon, or want to try a typical Ger- man recipe, and have a little patience to dip the stars out, then give it a try.
„Our baking day is Christmas hygge for us.“, so thanks for asking me to contribute, Anya. I’m glad to see your new mag-azine filled with hygge.
The recipe is very easy, you can find it in the latest version of SIMPLY HYGGE magazine. ENJOY and have a lovely weekend.
