History of Christmas Cookies πŸŽ…

Christmas cookies have had a long history! The earliest examples of Christmas cookies in the United States were brought by the Dutch in the early 17th century. Due to a wide range of cheap imported products from Germany between 1871 and 1906 following a change to importation laws, cookie cutters became available in American markets.

There are so many different types of Christmas cookies around the world. For example, Gingerbread cookies, Kerstkransjes (from the Netherlands) which are round with a hole in the middle and almonds as decoration and Krumkake (Norway) which means bent or twisted cake because they are wrapped in the shape of a cone.
