German Marzipan Stollen over 500 years of Christmas Tradition

For years while living in the US we have been enjoying the authentic German Marzipan Stollen, an over 500 year old Christmas tradition. We bought our Oebel Marzipan Stollen this year at World Market in Atlanta. My surprise was big for also finding German Marzipan Stollen at our new, local T.J. MAXX store. We did buy them there often, while on the road as consultants in Connecticut. But it sure makes us feel more at HOME with local supply now. Do you know this delicious German Tradition also? If not, you ought to buy one now, even 'after Christmas sales' can give you this great experience.
Enjoy this Marzipan Stollen with tea or coffee and I guarantee, you will be hooked!
So plan to add this to your Christmas to do list.
It sure brings one in the mood—together with candles and bobèches in silver candleholders...
Not much else needed but some Christmas music!
Served on a Rosenthal Sanssouci Roses Ivory plate.
The silver crocheted doily has been hand made by a former Turkish neighbor in The Netherlands.
Incredible work, I would not be able to copy that!
The silver tray was handmade for us in Kotagede, near Yogyakarta in Indonesia.

  2. You've reminded me; we need to get some Stollen when we next go shopping ... and also Panettoni.

    Merry Christmas Mariette and Pieter. God bless.

      Ma Stollen senza marzapane è anche molto buono!

  5. Lovely setting, Mariette, with that gorgeous tray and those candles. My dad's family is German, they came to Canada after WWII, so I grew up with German food, especially at the holidays! And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE marzipan!

  10. Always purchase at least one and bought mine yesterday at LIDL! Will open on Christmas Eve and add to the little open house celebration buffet. I have to admit I'm totally addicted to anything with marzipan or almond paste!!!

    1. Dearest Mary,
      Yes, we also have to look for one or some more... They belong to Christmas and who would NOT love them. Even I make an exception and have a slice...😏
