These Anise flavored cookies are a time-honored tradition. Truly a thing of beauty, these mouth watering works of art are embossed by specially carved wood molds. Ancient Germanic tribes enjoyed these cookies at Julfest, a celebration intended to bring on a mild winter and good fortune to the tribe. The name means “springing horse”, named for the most popular image on the cookies. There is also some speculation that the name is derived from the way the airy batter rises or “springs up” when baked. Today antique Springerle molds are cherished as family heirlooms and they are sure to put smiles on the faces of many generations to come.
