The Danish Christmas cuisine is something that everyone should experience! During the long winter in Denmark, the cosy Christmas traditions and all the sweet treats are well-deserved and longed for. Ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves are the key spices to a whole world of delicious Christmas biscuits – “Peberkage”, “Jødekage” and “Klejne”, just to name a few.
A soft alternative to the crispy, spicy biscuits are “Æbleskiver” – apple slices, directly translated. The little delicacy is round as an apple and similar to pancake dough. It is typically served with icing sugar and jam – as well as a warm cup of “Gløgg”; a mix of wine, almonds, raisins and spices.
For the extra sweet tooth, we have our own kind of homemade Christmas sweets: “konfekt”. Like little pieces of art, each is made individually of nougat, nuts and marzipan put together and often decorated with chocolate buttons or similar.
