Springerle Cookies 6 ct.Regular price $ 11.00
For centuries, these cookies have been a Christmas tradition in Bavaria and Austria. After settling in America in the 19th century, Benedictine Sisters in Indiana preserved this craft, each year creating these hard-to-find cookies the Old World way. These anise-flavored cookies are made from a simple egg-and-flour dough, sweetened with sugar and honey. Using specially carved cookie molds, the Sisters press a variety of Christmas-inspired designs into the dough before baking. The result is a firm and tender cookie that is a perfect accompaniment to coffee, tea or your holiday egg nog. Each box contains six cookies (about 2" long).
Ingredients: flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), powdered sugar (cane sugar, cornstarch), eggs, butter, honey, baking powder (baking soda, cornstarch, sodium aluminum sulfate, calcium sulfate, monocalcium phosphate), anise oil
