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.

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 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.
