Cookies simply belong in the Christmas season. Most people are aware that we quickly consume a lot of sugar and calories. The Wiener Kolatschen are no exception, even if they are baked with a reduced sugar content, as here. They are nevertheless delicious. Conscious enjoyment is therefore the motto.

You can also fill the Wiener Kolatschen with any other jelly of your choice. By the way, Kolatschen originally come from the Czech Republic and were a bread that was given to bridal couples. Today it is sweet and is still baked at weddings but also eaten in everyday life. However, here they usually only come on the biscuit plate at Christmas.
