    Chrystabel's Note:

    Authentic recipe from a German pastry chef living in Franken (Bavaria). As a matter of fact, Günter doesn’t live very far away from me! One of many Bienenstich recipes in my possession. Relatively easy and quick to make. Posted in response to buzzonesbirdie and her wish to get the “unamericanized version” of this popular German treat.
