Christmas in Alsace
Christmas specialties, "bredele" or "bredle" are delicious little cookies which may be made with butter ("butterbredle"), or flavored with anise ("anisbredle"), orange or cinnamon. Their various shapes evoke the holiday season and range from stars and fir trees to angels, bells and hearts.
