Wine cookies, traditional German Christmas cookies, use mulled wine, aka Glühwein, in the cookie as well as the icing. This recipe was sent in by another Gerhild. Check out Gerhild's Page to read about this unusual group of people and also see the various German recipes that they have submitted. This recipe is a translation of the Glühweinplätzchen recipe sent in by Gerhild Froeschke. She mentioned that she takes recipes and changes them to make them her own.
This is one of those recipes. Glühwein (mulled wine) is a very traditional German drink, especially during the Christmas celebrations and can be purchased throughout Germany.
If you want non-alcoholic Glühwein, just let it boil briefly to evaporate the alcohol. The Glühwein gives a really nice flavor to these cookies as well as their icing.
Pop right over to my private Facebook group, the Kaffeeklatschers. You'll find thousands of German foodies, all eager to help and to talk about all things German, especially these yummy foods.
I pop in all the time as well, to chat and to answer questions.
Meet with us around Oma's table, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and a piece of Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the visit.
