schnecken definition and meaning

What is "schnecken"?

Schnecken is a delicious and indulgent pastry that is popular in Germany and other parts of the world. It is made from a yeast dough that is enriched with sugar, eggs, and butter, which gives it a soft and fluffy texture. The dough is then rolled out into a thin sheet and spread with a mixture of cinnamon, sugar, and nuts, which adds a sweet and nutty flavor to the pastry. The sheet of dough is then rolled up into a spiral shape, which gives the pastry its distinctive appearance. Schnecken is often baked in a pan with a syrupy glaze or frosting, which adds a sticky and sweet topping to the pastry. It is often enjoyed as a breakfast food or a dessert.
