Need German cookie or baked goods ideas for an Octoberfest event

karykat | Aug 31, 2009 03:52 PM

A group I'm involved in is having a fundraising silent wine auction in conjunction with an event that is scheduled at the end of October. To add a new twist to our wine auction, we will be promoting German wines. And to add a further twist, we are adding sort of a lottery aspect, so that when someone picks a bottle, there may be a sticker on the bottom, letting them know they have won a German prize of some kind (like a gift certificate to a German restaurant, os some such.)

One of the prizes we want to include would be some German cookies or candies we could make that would be good. I'm picturing making a big batch of something, like some German Christmas cookies and putting them in plastic or cellophane bags. The idea is just to help fill our out prizes roster and add a little German flair to things.

Any ideas for good German cookies or something else like that we could make?
