Nutritional values

These delicacies contain relatively little fat. Therefore, as a small sin, they are definitely allowed with Advent coffee and at Christmas!

The cardamom makes the dough especially spicy, but if you want, you can use other Christmas spices such as cinnamon or allspice or even gingerbread spice instead.
