Those who guessed:
Basically everyone that guessed had the correct answer in some form. The difference between the German answer and the English answer is that in German, there is only one answer… and in English there are many that all mean the same thing.
Basically there are three different kinds (and I need to know this especially because of my test tomorrow on it!). Two different kinds are shown in this picture: Ausrollfähiger (dough that is rolled out and cut) and Spritzmürbeteig (softer batter-like dough, where it can be piped into designs)… the third, not shown, is called Streusel.
Teegebäck is obviously served with tea and coffee. The large sized cookies are generally for coffee. Generally speaking these cookies aren’t quite finished because usually they will be decorated with chocolate coating, marmalade, powder sugar, and so on…
The black and white cookies, are called Schwarz-Weiss (Black-White). They were really fun to make. To do so, you make two doughs, one regular and one with cocoa powder to give the dark color. Then, you roll out the dough and layer the two colors on top of each other and create designs. However, the better the measurements the better the cookies will turn out to be!
