At her home she told me that she would like to make Christmas biscuits with me. One of the most famous sort of Christmas biscuits in Austria is gingerbread. I had always wanted to make gingerbread. First of all we put all the ingredients together. Then I was allowed to knead the dough. It was great fun! There was a great mess in the whole kitchen. Only Magdalena's mother was a little bit angry but I could understand her. When the dough was ready, we started to punch out the biscuits. There were many different shapes. But my favourite shape was a reindeer. Now there are more than thirty reindeer to eat :) When there wasn't any dough left, we put all the biscuits into the oven for half an hour. Meanwhile we went into the cellar to get some sugar-icing and other things for the decoration. Then we began to decorate the biscuits. All the cute reindeer got a nice red nose.When Magdalena's motherlookedawayweboth nibbled a littlebit. Yummy! While we were working Magdalena said that it was snowing outside. I was surprised when I looked into the garden and could see some snow (of course not a lot). After some time we were ready. We looked at our biscuits and were happy: They are fantastic! Here is a photo of one of my reindeer and beside there are the ingredients for the gingerbread and the decoration for the biscuits.
