Traditionally the German housewife will bake three different types of cakes for Yuletide:

1. Large cake,

2. Gingerbread and almond biscuits,

3. Shaped biscuits.

The housewife should keep in mind that the Yuletide baking has a special meaning. Not only should it taste good, it should add to the meaning of the celebration. Thus the cakes and biscuits should, like the Yuletide Tree, the Jul Wreath and the candles, symbolize the great changes that occur at Winter Solstice. And therefore a good SS housewife should pride herself on keeping to the old recipes and shapes and rejecting all cheap and American factory produced goods.

The large cake served with a candle in the middle and the large flat cake are still to be found in every house today. The gingerbread cakes and biscuits, which taste so nice made with honey and syrup and which fill the whole house with their delicious aroma, should be cut into hearts, starand wheels.

Eventually every SS household should have a complete set of wooden cutters for the almond biscuits.

The preferred shapes are:

1. The Cockerel, announcer of daytime;

2. The Boar, a traditional Yuletide food;

3. The Rider, Wotan on his horse;

4. The Hunter, Wotan;

5. The Spinner, Lady Holle or Frigga;

6. The Tree of Life;

7. The Human Couple.

Hand formed biscuits should be made also in the shape of the Runic Letters. This operation is not difficult if the dough is rolled first into a long thick spaghetti. Such Runic Letters as the Swastika, the Odal Rune in all its different shapes, the pretzel, the Sun Spiral and the horseshoe can then be formed easily. So can the four-, six- and eight-spoke Sun Wheel.

These biscuits should be used to decorate the Jul Wreath, the Yuletide Tree and the Yuletide table of every SS family.
