Today is Saint Nicholas Day. It's a tradition here in Switzerland to bake little guys called "Grittibänz" for this day. Each member of the family gets one. And we will eat them for breakfast with butter and honey or jam. Look at them - they are so funny this year: big and sturdy.

If you want to try it:

500 g flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt

mix it well

60 g butter (melted)
3 - 3 1/2 dl milk (lukewarm)
20 g fresh yeast or 
one bag dried yeast for 500 g flour
1 tablespoon sugar (for the yeast)        

mix it with the flour and knead it well until the dough is smooth. Then put it in a warm place and let it double. It takes 30 to 60 minutes. Then knead the dough again and form the guys. Bake them with 200 C in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
