    1. These look delicious. Remind me a little bit of Berliner but having them with Quark makes them so much more interesting. Thanks for the recipe and I will have to give it a try sometime x

      This looks so delicious, and your pictures help make the recipe easier to follow and understand. It looks so simple, easy to prepare, and also very tasty. I’d like to pair that with hot coffee to help balance the sweetness of the powdered sugar. Thanks for sharing!
