German Cookies for the Holidays with Conny/ November 25th

Who doesn’t like cookies? We will make 2 very famous Christmas cookies I baked all my childhood with my parents.

I also will have some extras for you to enjoy during class.

Bring your own beverage and let’s have fun!

Cookies contain tree nuts, eggs, wheat.


My name is Conny. I’m born in Germany and lived there until my mid 30s. My Mom and Grandma were the first to teach me how to cook and bake. They did it so well my first idea about an occupation was to be a cook!

After I moved to America I was home to raise my boys. During this time I spend lots of time in the kitchen to feed my family. My boys know a lot of German dishes!

During this time I started cake decoration and made all the birthday cakes for my family. I also made petit fours for weddings and baked bread for a restaurant.

Later on I worked as a cook and baker in a wonderful tea house in Ohio, had an episode as head cook for a middle school in Waukee and recently helped prepare delicious dishes at the Wallace Centers of Iowa. 

I’m the owner of SunRose Bakery where I focus on baking gluten-free and vegan goods. 

I’m very happy to teach you my favorite German dishes!
