St. Peter visits a smithy and when a old beggar approaches them, St. Peter grabs him puts him in the blacksmith's fire and then makes him young with his smithing skills.
The blacksmith tries to do the same with his mother in law and... fails miserably, making her look even older.
Welp, the story is mostly the same as the one we know, except the house was made more or bread and cakes than candy, which makes sense since most candy didn't exist back then. Also the original story includes them returning home with a bunch of riches they took from the witch and that their evil mother was dead.
And I have to mention the final line in the story: "My Tale is done, there runs a mouse, whosoever catches it, my make himself a big fur cap out of it"
God and St. Peter visit a notorious gambler, but he's gambled everything and can't offer them food, so St. Peter gives him money to buy some... instead of God just apparating it.
Hansel obviously gambles it away, so St.Pete just forces him to buy the bread, they reward him with three wishes (because he OBVIOUSLY learned his lesson?) and he asks for trick cards and dice and a tree with fruit that you can't climb down unless Hansel wants you to.
Soon Hansel literally owns half the world, so St. Peter sends Death and instead of gambling with Death, he tricks Death to climb the tree, where he was stuck for seven years until St. Peter forces him to let Death free and dies immediately.
He gambles in Hell and wins all the demons over and uses them to attack Heaven, so they let him in, only he's just a jerk they kick him out and his soul shatters and now it's living in every gambler.
The Virgin Mary adopts a child whose parents can't care for and grows up in Heaven, one day Mary has to go away and says the girl can enter any of thirteen doors except the last one, which obviously means she enters.
The Holy Trinity was in there and when it's light touches the girls finger it becomes golden. Mary kicks the girl out of Heaven since she refuses and takes her voice away.
She ends marrying a King, because fairy tales, but when she has the first child with him, the Virgin Mary takes the baby away since she still won't confess she opened the door.
She does this three times, and by then the King thinks the girl is eating the child and ties to a stake to get burnt to death. She finally confesses and Mary returns the kids and gives her a happy life.
