Passion for Springerle

Is their unique taste, pristine beauty, or family tradition that makes Springerle so special? It's all of those and I'd have a tough time deciding which of these factors is number one on my list of Springerle qualities. In fact, please don't ask me to decide!

And so, here we begin a journal for all who have a passion for Springerle. I'll share stories, techniques and comments about these cookies that are too pretty to eat. But eat them we must, because  their dense cake-like texture and the traditional anise flavor tempt us with with taste and memories!

Welcome all who hold dear the family recipe, the grandma's baking lessons and the holiday memories!
