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.

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.

These crispy anise-flavored cookies are pressed with individual molds or a Springerle rolling pin, allowed to dry overnight, and then baked. The cookies are stored for a week or two before serving for best flavor. This recipe uses bakers' ammonia and anise oil, which can be found in specialty stores or online.

This is the old German recipe ... belonged to my mom-in-law at the time. I've been baking these for the past 30+ years! It remains a family favorite!! Look for a springerle rolling pin in antique stores.

Anise Cookies (Springerle)

This is a 100 year old recipe from Germany. I use it every Christmas. Its traditionally served with black coffee to dunk the cookie in. I prefer to eat them when they are still warm as the lemon flavor and the anise is a wonderful combination and the lemon is stronger at that time.

Springerle cookies are a centuries-old, anise-flavored German Christmas cookie made using decorative, carved wooden molds or rolling pins. Allowed to dry overnight, the designs remain embossed in the cookies when baked.

I got this recipe from my grandmother who got it from her grandmother. She had to translate it and then figure out measurements. The original recipe called for "enough flour to make a dough". Thankfully grandma knew what kind of dough.
