Usually, a couples of weeks before Xmas, I take a day off and spend the whole day in the kitchen baking Xmas “bredeles”. Those traditional Xmas biscuits from Germany, East of France. This day has become a Xmas tradition in our house hold. Unfortunately this won’t be happening this year. So I do my best and spread the baking over evenings and weekends. Here is a new recipe that I never tried before. It is a delight and has a lovely combination of some of the classic Xmas ingredients.
You will need:
- 210 grams spelt flour
- 100 grams millet flour
- 150 grams cold butter
- 80 grams coconut sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tea spoon baking soda
- 1/2 tea spoon vanilla extract
For the coating
- 70 grams chopped nuts
- 50 grams grated chocolate
Pre-heat the oven 170 C (fan oven).
In a bowl sift the flours and add the sugar, baking soda and vanilla extract. Make a well in the center and crack the egg in. Mix roughly with a fork. Incorporate the butter diced and mix with your fingers until you are able to form a ball with the dough.
Make small balls and coat them in the mix nuts/chocolate.
Bake for about 12 min and let cool before enjoying them!
