  1. schnecken

    Schnecken is a type of German pastry that is similar to a cinnamon roll or sticky bun. It is often rolled into a snail-like shape with currants, nuts, and a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, and topped with a sugary glaze after baking. The name 'schnecken' is German for snails, which the pastry resembles in shape. It is especially popular in areas with large German-speaking populations.


  1. Schnecken

    Schnecken are a type of sweet bun that was a traditional Saturday morning treat in German homes at the beginning of the 20th century and that was commonly found in the Jewish immigrant communities in the Philadelphia and Baltimore areas. The name schnecken means snails in English and refers to the shape of the pastry. The bun is still common in Germany, where the name is schnecke, and in other parts of northern Europe. Schnecken are commonly confused with rugelach, another German bun that is different in two respects: Schnecken dough is made with sour cream, while rugelach is made with cream cheese; and Schnecken are rolled and sliced, whereas rugelach are formed from individual triangles of dough.
