Springerle German Christmas Cookies
Stir all ingredients except anise together. Let stand about two
hours. Mold, take a small scoop and roll out on pastry cloth with
design roller. Then cut into squares and leave on board for a short
period of time so design sets.
Preheat oven to 325. Butter baking sheets, arrange cookies on sheet
and sprinkle with anise seeds. Bake on middle rack for 15 minutes.
