Amber-tinged leaves are starting to fall. You can achieve the same golden hues with your home-baked cookies. Fall is the time of harvest and reflection. The days are growing shorter, and we use sparkly lights to brighten up the darkness. Some carve pumpkins and celebrate Halloween, others honour the traditions of grape harvest and parish festivities. Whatever the reason for celebrating is, it wouldn’t be a proper feast without some sweet and yummy cookies.
We’re here with toothsome tips to conjure up smiles on the faces of the trick-or-treaters, young lads and even Saint Martin himself.
At the turn of September and October, it is time for the wine growers to pick their precious grapes. The wine tasting is accompanied by folklore dances, songs and costumes. The countryside resounds with rumbustious chants and the thudding of dancing feet. The tables are overflowing with an impressive spread and plenty of sweets make their appearance.
For fall-themed cookies, we recommend using our Wellington boot, piglet, leaf or cross cookie cutters.
Gingerbread cookies are a staple of every proper feast. Make the best ones using our cross, church or traditional Christmas cookie cutters. Don’t forget to decorate them and give them a glaze. You can also go for the typical Bohemian festive cookies in the shape of a flower. You can find these traditional cookie cutters on our online store.
There’s no reason to be fretting over Halloween. The tradition of this holiday dates
back to Samhain, a Celtic celebration of the end of harvest and the beginning of a
harsh winter. Ever since the 16th century, people have kept the tradition of walking
up to their neighbours’ houses in scary costumes and asking for some nibbles in
exchange for a poem or carol. The tradition survived, and now we can celebrate the
end of October with the best fall-themed cookies.
