Bones of the Dead

Submitted by: Michele Flannery 
This is my favorite cookie of all the ones my Nana made and taught me to make for the family. Serve with wine or your favorite ice cream. They are also a great accent to a good cup of coffee.

My great-grandmother Schneider always baked these German cookies for the Christmas holidays. These cookies have a distinctive flavor that comes from anise oil. A springerle rolling pin is best, but one can use cookie presses. They are best if made about two weeks in advance and then stored in an airtight container before eating.

In Italian, these cookies are called "Ossi Dei Morti" or bones of the dead. They are hard cookies, but they are used for teething babies. Adults like to dip them in cappuccino.

This is the best tasting, easiest prepared springerle recipe I have baked over the past 35+ years. I use a springerle board for ease, vs. the rolling pin. My friends still love to receive these as gifts each Christmas.

This biscotti-like cookie is lighter and softer in texture than the traditional Italian version. This 'twice baked' cookie is enjoyable with a cup of coffee or anytime.
