We recharge your batteries with Christmas cookies!

Bye bye 2023! Hello Christmas time! While the NOVUM AI continues to hold the fort, we are looking forward to relaxing days with our favorite people, walks in nature and, of course, lots of chocolate.

The NOVUM team has come up with something very special this year so that you too can start the holidays in a good mood and full of energy: Together with all our employees, we spent a day helping to provide our customers and partners with home-baked Christmas cookies.

Our favorite recipes and many colorful impressions from the NOVUM Chrismas Kitchen can be found here.

We wish you happy holidays and a happy new year!



You can make our shortcrust pastry batteries completely safely in your own kitchen. The batter chemistry is very simple: Mix the flour and sugar. Add the butter in small pieces. Divide the dough into two balls and place them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.

Now make flat cookies in the shape of batteries. Alternatively, you can roll out the dough and cut out cookies. Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes and then leave them to cool. The cold cookies can now be decorated with chocolate coating and sprinkles.

The following applies to NOVUM shortcrust pastry batteries as an exception: Be sure to destroy them after their first life!


250 grams of wheat flour

100 grams sugar

130 grams of cold butter

1 medium egg


1 packet of chocolate couverture

Sprinkles as desired


To make our NOVUM-Crescents, first roast the almonds in a pan without butter until they are golden brown. Leave them to cool and grate the almonds to produce a fine powder. Then carefully scrape the seeds out of the vanilla pods. Now you just need to cut the butter into small pieces before you can finally knead the flour, almonds, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt into a dough.

Preheat the oven to 155 degrees.

Now simply shape your NOVUM-Crescents like vanilla crescents and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper with sufficient space between them. Bake the cookies for 14 minutes. Leave the NOVUM-Crescents to cool before sprinkling them with the vanilla sugar you have prepared yourself.

Now you and your loved ones can try them in seconds!



120 g ground almonds

2 vanilla pods

250 g cold butter

300 g wheat flour

100 g powdered sugar

1 pinch of salt


2 vanilla pods

160 g powdered sugar



For fruity energy during the Christmas season, grate the freeze-dried
freeze-dried raspberries into a fine powder. Cut up the butter, add the raspberry powder and quickly knead everything together with the remaining ingredients to form a smooth dough, which you can then chill in the fridge for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.

Now you need two identical baking tins in different sizes, e.g. 2 hearts. Roll out the dough and cut out hearts with the larger tin first. Make holes in half of these hearts using the smaller tin. Bake the cookies for about 14 minutes.

Heat the white chocolate coating in a bain-marie. Mix about 15 grams of the raspberry powder into the white chocolate. Apply the chocolate coating to the hearts with a hole, sprinkle the remaining raspberry powder on top and leave to dry.

Now boil the jam. Coat the hearts without a hole with jam and place the prepared cookies with a hole and chocolate coating on top.

If you feel tired during the holidays, our raspberry energy cookies will put you in a good mood and give you energy.
