Frohe Festtage

Zimtstern & Brunsli, Christmas cookies, the best in town

This year the Chef’s Handyman team has decided to focus on two traditional Christmas cookies, which are the Swiss favorites. ‘Brunsli’ is a cookie made with grated almonds and chocolate and the ‘Zimtstern’ is a star shaped cinnamon cookie. We bought sweets from different bakeries like Buchmann, from Honold, Fleischli, Guggenloch, from Peter in Adliswil and also from Sprüngli. All tested cookies are delicious. The difference makes the texture and the spices. The recipes for the cookies are almost the same but the outcome is always different. Each team member has his favorite bakery even then a unified ranking is the result.

Chef’s Handyman, Cookie Tasting

Zimtstern, cinnamon cookie

The winner is the bakery Peter in Adliswil, the vegan cinnamon cookie from the bakery Guggenloch made the 2nd place, followed by Sprüngli.

Brunsli, chocolate cookie

The winners are the bakeries Peter in Adliswil and Fleischli, the 2nd place made Honold, followed by the bakery Buchmann.

All cookies are great in taste. I’m sure the homemade versions are still the best.

Merry Christmas
