Springerle for Spring!

Springerle are traditional German cookies which are made from springerle molds.photo.jpg Recently I received this beautiful gift box from Patrice Romzick of Springerle Joy who produces the most exquisite molds I have seen. When I opened the box the first thing I saw was this lovely card with a note explaining that the ornament was made from one of her molds. photo-3.jpg And underneath the card was an assortment of beautiful pastel springerle with designs appropriate for christmas, valentine's day, and yes springtime! photo-2.jpg The word springerle is derived from the German "to jump or spring forth" so why not springerle for springtime.
