German Christmas Honey Biscuits and tour

Provided by:

Event runs from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM


Hahndorf Walking Tours is bringing you the opportunity to make and decorate Honey biscuits which have been part of German culture for centuries. Honey was used as a sweetener and also for flavour to add to biscuit dough. It was often the only ingredient available as spices were hard to obtain. Over time other spices have been added and depending on different traditions and family preferences the basic recipe can be changed to suit yourself. As Christmas draws near honey biscuits are the perfect gift, a special treat and can also be a decoration on your tree. Activities during the morning • Greeted with a cuppa • Make and cook a batch of honey biscuits as well as a Christmas tree shape to hang on your tree with a real Oma • Decorate 12 premade honey biscuits which can be packaged up into 3x4 biscuit cellophane packages to take home as gifts • Short tour and history of church and historic cemetery Margie was taught to make several German treats by her mother. Join Margie and me and learn how to make these biscuits, so you can share them with your family and friends. If the classes isn't filled you will be contacted seven days prior. You will be provided with a HWT gift card to use for another event/tour. Entry Cost All tickets $75
