When we lived in German we used to go to Rothenburg Germany, it as a walled city...They have some of the best goodies I found....I got my mom and sister hooked on these too besides me being hooked on them...Each area has their own little special pastry and this is one of Rothenburgs to die for pastry...I put in a free picture from on line till I have my own to put in here...There is also a video that shows how they make they in Rothenburg.
