This recipe makes beautiful Springerle Cookies that taste great.
 I have always loved the look of Springerle Cookies. The cookie molds are true works of art. The craftsmanship that goes into every detail of the mold is exquisite. I bought my heart shaped cookie mold from House on the Hill. These are not quick and easy cookies to make, but the time you take is rewarded with cookies that everyone will rave about.
Make these as special Valentine’s Day Cookies.

    You have inspired me to use my Step Father’s Springerle mold. I have had it for 10 years, and have been intimidated by it. I will try these soon, maybe for Easter. Thanks for the beautiful recipe!
