Christmas Advent Day 7: Berlinerbänze

I am so sorry, but I have been holding out on you. While you were enjoying the delights of St. Nikolaustag yesterday, eating your weight in Grittibänze, I too was doing the same, but with a Grittibänze of another art... the filled Berlinerbänze... part little man, part donut - 100% HEAVEN. (Click here for accompanying Homer donut noise... ;)
Here are some little Berlinerbänze men now, coming down the conveyor belt now.


After they are cool, they are stuffed with jelly or jam and set on these trays to waft delightful smells into the market air... here are two now getting their hot jam injection. Ok, maybe it wasn't hot, but I had to get in a Breakfast Club reference there. ;)

Happy 2nd Advent or 7th day of December everyone!

Hi Rosti. This was at the Einsiedeln Christmas market.. a lot of the photos are from there actually. The stand was close to the train station, on the street leading up to the monastery.
