Advent is just the right time to bring together family and friends, but also colleagues. Take this moment to review the past year together and enjoy the best moments with some homemade cookies. As Cookie Monster once said:

“Friend is someone to share the last cookie with.”


The days are getting colder and shorter. The warm tea, cocoa or punch tastes only half as good without cookies and with the thick sweater you do not see that if you have eaten a cookie or Gutsle too much. Or what do you call the cookies in your country?

Every country has developed and optimized its own Christmas recipes over the years. What are your favorite recipes?

What is a Cookie?

The german term “cookie” derives from the English language and means baked snack, and at first glance has little to do with IT. The cookie technology was named after its inventor Lou Montulli, who used the term “cookie” to refer to a well-known technique for jumping to previously visited pages in computer programs, which was already known as the “magic cookie”. In its simplest form, a “cookie” in today’s sense is a text file that is stored by a web browser in the user’s local memory and can contain a wide variety of information.

About cookies and biscuits

The german word Plätzchen is a diminutive of the dialect word “place”. However, it does not describe a place, but means “flat shaped cake”. The term Keks was derived from the original English term “cakes.” The German manufacturer Herrmann Bahlsen brought the idea of ready-made cakes and pastries to Germany in 1911. At that time, there was no suitable name for this type of pastry in this country.
