Cookie Time

I’m being lazy with today’s post – it isn’t the usual well reasoned (or sometimes not so well reasoned) commentary on whatever strikes my fancy for the day. Instead a couple of  photographs.

However, since the proverb says a picture is worth a thousand words, then this post is actually longer than usual.

My oatmeal cookies are pretty popular here. The impression I have is that most Germans have never had one before – they must be a North American thing. I’d share, but haven’t figured out how to get them to you while they are still fresh.

  1. Do they do shortbread cookies?
    How about butter tarts? The tarts are supposedly a Canadian thing, so I’m guessing they might not…

    …I’m with Mike by the way. I see you capitalizing on the weekend markets instead of just visiting.

    1. I’m not a big cookie consumer, so I haven’t looked closely. I have seen the same Danish butter cookies we used to have in Canada. And yes, I think I saw some shortbread cookies. I don’t think there are butter tarts, but that would be a bakery thing, not a grocery store. There is a bakery on every corner here. Some do basic breadstuffs, others are more elaborate with amazing cakes and cookies. At least they look amazing, I don’t eat many sweets.

      I don’t think I would want to get into commercial baking, especially with only one baking sheet. Germany is renowned for its paperwork, I can only imagine the hoops I would have to jump through to sell a cookie. And getting people to try them isn’t easy – my Candy Cane cookies at Christmas were looked at with great suspicion by people who had never seen anything like them before.

  2. “…picture is worth a thousand words, then this post is actually longer than usual.” Groaner!
    Maybe you can sell oatmeal cookies at all those weekend fairs you attended
