If you’re going to be doing any traveling this winter, you have to make sure you’re trying the local holiday sweets! Here are just a few for you to look out for.
These cookies are almost like a donut because they are fried, but however you want to classify them, they’re 100% delicious. Look out for them over the holidays if you go to Mexico and enjoy these crispy little treats covered in cinnamon and sometimes powdered sugar!
Kolacky or kolaches in some countries are a pastry biscuit that is eaten in countries like Hungary, the Czech Republic, and other Central and sometimes Eastern European countries. They are pieces of pastry that have apricot or sometimes other poppy seed fillings inside and are shaped in a very and petite diamond.
Though you can find this kind of cookies in New York delis all year round if you want the real stuff if you have to go to Austria. These shortbread cookies are filled with a raspberry jam, or sometimes another kind of fruit, and are shaped keeping the center open to see the beautiful jam coming through. If you’re lucky, you might be able to find them in some parts of Germany as well!
