My Favorite Cookies

Like I need cookies . . but you can't have the holidays without these. They have to sit out all night to dry (so the design stays in them) and I can bake them in the morning. Anyone know what they are? Probably everyone knows what they are but I didn't til moving to Kentucky. We didn't have these in my part of Louisiana so they're a fairly new treat for us. I think they're German and I know for sure they're good! Judy


  • Judy,
    Those look so good I could eat them! You'll have to let me know how they taste. Just don't send me any...they are NOT on my diet! LOL

  • Ummm yummmmm! Don't know the name, but I've had them before, and they're great! Eat a couple for me!

  • No idea on what they are called, but I have a new favorite cookie - the recipe is on the back of the mint flavored hershey's kisses bag...

    My old favorite is a cookie that is stuffed with raisins that has been in my family for 4 generations!

  • They are called Springerle cookies and they are from Germany. I tried to make them, quite unsuccessfully, when I was a kid. Haven't tried since...don't have the pin anymore to roll them out. I hope yours are delicious...they look like they are!

  • Yup I've seen those, but never tasted them. Just had a picture of a man making them for Christmas in a current magazine I get! They are called Springerle cookies and I've always wanted to try to make them!

    Tell me how they turn out!

  • They look like German cookies to me, Judy. Let me tell you - 1/2 of Christmas in Austria is all about how many different varieties of cookies you can make. Cookie making season has started in earnest over here!

  • Yep, they're German and they're springerle cookies. I love them! The problem is .. the dog loves them too so I almost have to sneak a cookie to keep him from begging and whining. NO! I am not sharing my cookies with the dog. I think he smells the anise and remembers them from previous years (when someone else . . not me) shared with him.

    I've been making these for several years . . ever since I bought them at a monestary at Ferdinand, IN and fell in love with them.

    Amy, I have some of those mint kisses and the recipe on the bag is what I will make next. I don't like chocolate so those will be for my family.

    Evelyn, how neat that cookie making is such a big deal there. I love making Christmas cookies.

  • They are Springerle cookies from Germany. My DH and his first wife used to make them all the time until they left them out to dry and left the house for a few hours and the doberman puppy ate the whole batch! Not a pretty sight and I'm pretty sure she didn't feel too good afterwards! She was okay! (And I have never made them, but do have the rolling pin with the patterns on it!)
