Springerles and speculaas. I have a springerle roller that my Gramma had
bought from Germany back in the early 1900s. DH loves the springerles in
the rock stage. Says they are good for dipping in his coffee like biscotti
and loves the anise flavor. So, I put half in a tight lidded old canning
jar with a slice of apple for the kidlets and me, half just go in his
biscotti jar and stay hard as a rock <g>
Everyone loves the speculaas with all the warm spice flavors.
I usually make husarenhutchens but couldn't find any good hazelnuts and the
deer and ground squirrels ate all my raspberries so didn't get any jam made.
I've deer proofed the raspberries and when spring rolls around we're adding
a few cats to keep the ground squirrel population under control.
Husarenhutches will appear again next year!
