Making Grittibänzen

We wanted to try making some Grittibänzen of our own. It was a lot of fun and they came out great. Here's the recipe we used:


(makes 4 small Grittibänzen)

500g white flour
20g yeast
2 t salt
3 dl warm milk
50 g melted butter
1 egg, plus an egg yolk for brushing the dough
4 t sugar

Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl and make a well. Add the yeast and warm milk. Mix yeast and milk and cover the bowl with a damp kitchen cloth and let it rest for 15 minutes. Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix together to make a dough. Knead for 2-3 minutes. Cover with a damp kitchen towel and put in a warm place to rise for 45 minutes. Shape into little men, decorate with raisins, chocolate, almonds, sugar, etc. Brush with egg yolk. Bake at 200 degrees C for around 20-25 minutes.

And here are our results:
