My husband and I spent a month in Germany last year for Oktoberfest. He has been studying German for the last couple of years and it was a great way for him to immerse himself in the German culture and language. This year, I’d like to bring some Germany to him for the holidays.
I did some reading, and found out that no German Christmas is complete without Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Star Cookies). Nuts, cinnamon, and sweet sugar icing are combined to create a soft, chewy cake-like cookie. This Keto version uses almond flour for the nutty flavor and erythritol for sweetness. So go ahead and make these for your Keto Christmas celebration, nobody will know they are sugar-free!
“Zimtsterne” are perhaps the most traditional Christmas cookies in Germany. They are the Mince Pies of Deutschland; the ultimate festive baked good. Plus, they taste absolutely delicious.Katrin of Sugar Free Londoner
