Pfeffernusse, Printen and Kipferl - oh my! It's not Christmas until you've eaten your weight in cookies, right? This week's Local List makes sure that you at least have some variety in that biscuit diet.

Germans love their cakes and sweets, but cookies are usually wrapped in foil packages and served exclusively with hot drinks – until Christmas, that is. 

Now is the time to break out your cookie sheet and invest in some quality cinnamon to get ready for the holidays. 

From the spicy-sweet pfeffernuss to the melt-in-your-mouth vanillekipferl, we hope you enjoy our mouth-watering round up of German Christmas cookies. 

Now excuse me, I'm off to buy some butter.
