Every winter or before Christmas I buy a bag of Mutzen sometimes, and they are tasty small biscuits. I am not a great cook and I can’t give you an exact recipe but as far as I know they are made of flour, eggs and sugar. The pastry is put into hot oil and the result are those cute and tasty looking pastry balls. Mutzen are a Rhenish recipe as I have read, and it was a traditional biscuit for carnival and new year’s eve. But that just seems to be the history of it, but today you will probably find them everywhere in Germany, especially on Christmas fairs or during other celebrations. It’s also possible to find them in summer if you know where. But for me, they are traditional winter biscuits. I shot the photo in this post a few days ago because I visited our Christmas fair together with my mother, and usually when we do that, we purchase a bag of Mutzen and snack them.
