The history of Christmas cookies

It’s the most wonderful time of the year when chefs all over the world literally fly around their kitchen kingdoms baking lots of Christmas cookies.

Whether you prefer gingerbread, crunchy cookies or shortbread rolls, it’s likely that your Christmas holidays won’t be complete without some freshly baked cookies.

Like many Christmas traditions, the origins of this delicious custom date back to ancient times. And the origin of these celebrations lies in the winter solstice celebrations .

Winter solstice festivals have been held around the world for centuries. From Norway to West Africa, from Ireland to India, groups of people gather to celebrate the changing of the seasons .

Celebrations revolved around food. The solstice marked the arrival of the first frost , so animals had to be killed and preserved for food over the winter. Drinks like beer and wine that were brewed in the spring were finally ready to drink.

In the Middle Ages , the Christmas holidays deviated from the classic winter solstice rituals, but the feasting remained. However, there have been big changes in the field of baking.

Spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper became widely used in baking, and dried exotic fruits such as lemon, apricots and dates brought something new to desserts. These ingredients, along with additives such as sugar, lard and butter , were only used on the most important holidays, which included Christmas.

Confectionery was created at this time, when it began to be shared between neighbors as small gifts and thanks.

If we wanted to bake traditional sweets, we reach for spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, and these are exactly the same spices that were used in medieval kitchens ages ago.

Gingerbread in particular is such a classic medieval Christmas cookie. Ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise come together to create a spicy tangy taste, just like back then.

If you’ve just got a taste for classic sweets, get inspired by ourtraditional gingerbread recipes and taste a bit of the Middle Ages.
