Springerle cookies are a time honored tradition. Each cookie is a miniature work of art, embossed by pressing the dough into specially carved wood molds. Ancient Germanic tribes enjoyed these cookies at Julfest, a celebration intended to bring on a mild winter and good fortune to the tribe. The name means "springing horse", named for the most popular image on the cookies. There is also some speculation that the name is derived from the way the airy dough rises or "springs up" when baked. Today antique Springerle molds are cherished as family heirlooms and they are sure to put smiles on the faces of many generations to come.
