#TheCakeSliceBakers- Cream Cheese Coffeecake

TWD: Blueberry Buttermilk Pie Bars

Blitzkuchen

Blitzkuchen aka traditional German almond sugar cookies. And the name? Blitz is a reference to how quick they are. Two bowls, mix the dough by hand and they’re done. This fabulous recipe is from Luisa Weiss’ “Classic German Baking,” this month’s Food 52 Baking Club book, and my newest obsession.
