Hello everybody.

I was wondering if anybody knows a good german store in this area.
In Texas I was so lucky to have the German food from GermanDeli.com and BreadHaus Bakery around the corner but I haven't found anything here yet.

Thanks in advance.

I can't help you on White Plains, but the best German bakery that I have found in eastern NY is Deisings in Kingston. Unfortunateky that is about 90 miles north of White Plains. I haven't been able to find any true German bakery around greater Albany so far.

FWIW.... There are a couple famous German butcher shops around greater NYC ... try 'Schaller and Webber' and 'Karl Ehmer'. I just don't know bakeries there. For candy ..try Hannah Krause Candy in Paramus, NJ. The extended family has a Krauses upstate in Saugerties and Albany also.

None that I know of... sorry, but I will keep an eye out.

However, if you ever go into the city, you should look into a restaurant called Lederhosen on Grove Street. The selection of beers is really good, along with the wurst and schnitzel. I am also a big fan of the spaetzle too.

There is a German bakery in Greenwich called The Black Forest. Also, I understand there are German/Polish/Hungarian foodshops in Stamford.

Question German Christmas Cookie Search

Hello. I have been searching for a cookie a German lady in my neighborhood maed for a get together several years ago. It was the most wonderful cookie I ever ate. She would not share her recipe with me and simply called it a "German Christmas Cookie". They were soft and rolled in powdered sugar. They tasted like they might have finely ground fruit, nuts and spices. The thing that made them so different was their texture. They were not cakey or crumbly. They were very unique and I have searched high and low for something that resembles them. Please let me know if anyone has a clue as to what that cookie was. Thanks! Mary

For German foods the closest I can think of is the Carl Ehmer store in Yorktown. It is part of a chain that used to be quite a bit bigger.

The cookies were probably one of the many almond cookies (try Google-ing up German almond cookies) for some recipes, they are most often crescents or "pretzel" shaped. The only other form of cookie I could think of was Pfeffernusse. They are usually a hard cookie but are spicy and rolled in powdered sugar.

Yeah, it definitely had to be Pfeffernusse or Lebkuchen. Lebkuchen is my personal favorite but they are pretty darn similiar! You can find both at a Trader Joe's this time of year (that's the easiest place if you're not convenient to a german market.)
