Old German Honey Cookies

Rating: 4 stars 179
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.

German Anise Christmas Cookies (Springerle)

Rating: 3 stars 7
This are an old favorite made during holidays. They are very crisp, almost hard; good dunking cookies

Waser Kipfels (Water Lillie's)

Rating: 4 stars 3
These are from a 125 year old German recipe. Tricky to make but worth the effort. This recipe has been in my family for 65 years. Some measures are not shown in the original, nor is the oven temperature. This takes a lot of time. The filling is much like baklava.
