Tirggel Christmas Tree biscuits represent a special, very adorable gift for the upcoming holiday!
The Tirggel story has its origins in Wadenswil, in the bakery of the Suter family. Nowadays, despite much manual work, they use modern packaging machines. Also, for making Tirggel sweets, they use a dough mixer and electric oven.
An eighteenth-century recipe in Old German reveals the original Tirggel mix:
Take a brook of honey 3 Lott Imper, 1 Lott room, 1 and a half lot of nails, a little milk, and a bitzeli rose water.
