Bredele bring me back immediately in the family of Mr. in the East of France, and when I close my eyes and that I enjoy, I find myself in the middle of a Christmas market and glittery musical…that imagination you tell me ! Then, it was unthinkable for me not to offer you at least one recipe of bredele for the holidays. I had already proposed the butterbredele last year and this year up to zimtsterne.

What do you want, I love these little cookies that are eaten during advent, and today I have created cute little star to the cinnamon, the so-called zimtsterne.

Would you take a bredele ?!
