Happy first advent, we will show for each advent how we in Switzerland make Christmas Biscuits. We start our series with the traditional Mailänderli, those biscuits has long tradition. Some people believe the biscuit tradition originally comes from the superstition before christi, where the people sacrificed animals. This should be the reason why also today many animal shapes for this biscuit will be used. However we don't know. We just can say, since we were children, we love them.
With this recipe you will be able to participate on this famous tradition.
