Hans' Profile

About

We are two entrepreneurs from Germany running the "Keksies" K.u.K. (Kekse und Kaffeehaus Food) venture which started back in 2009 as a side venture.

We serve you with classic "Kaffeehaus Food" like Strudel, Gugelhupfi and Feingebäck ( as we call our coffee and tea cookies). Here on etsy and also for local delivery in New York City.
During Christmas time we focus on traditional German and Austrian holiday cookies (Weihnachtsplätzchen), Kekse , pastries and Stollen.

Grown up in Bavaria and Austria as kids we were used to get these delicious traditional Christmas cookies from our moms and grandmothers during Advent. But since we lived in our own home in Hamburg, Germany – far away from mom and grandma – nobody brought us holiday cookies during Christmas time. So we decided to learn this time consuming and laborious art of baking…

Grown up in Bavaria and Austria as kids we were used to get these delicious traditional Christmas cookies from our moms and grandmothers during Advent. But since we lived in our own home in Hamburg, Germany – far away from mom and grandma – nobody brought us holiday cookies during Christmas time. So we decided to learn this time consuming and laborious art of baking authentic Christmas cookies ourselves.

Hans, who used to work in the internet business in Hamburg Germany, quickly figured out that many people were searching the internet for Keywords like “Authentic German Christmas Cookies”, etc. And so it was obvious that we would not only bake for ourselves but also for these guys who don’t have the time or patience to bake pastries at home.

Meanwhile we are making the best cookies you can find in New York City and maybe even on the whole etsy marketplace. Made by hand using our old family recipes with only the best and (when possible) local ingredients. This is why our famous Blueberry Strudel for example is only available in July and August. Because we only use fresh and local blueberries.

Please let us know if you have any questions! Also feel free to contact us about wholesale-, catering or special orders. You can also hire us as Private Pastry Chefs for your event in New York or Detroit.
