let the Christmas cookie madness begin!

Getting a bit of a late start this year, but Christmas baking season is now upon us!
So today, I'm going to be baking a batch of pfeffernuse spiced cookies that scream holidays. Dough is resting in the fridge. I made it last night, and now time to start rolling out those little nuggets of happiness. These are little cookies made with honey, molasses, cinnamon, cardamom, allsice, nutmeg, cloves, ginger , black pepper, and anise oil.

then it's time to roll out the three batches of springerle dough I made last night as well. One with a ton of powdered sugar and cake flour Recipe number 2 which yields a light, crumbly tender cookie , and a couple batches of Recipe number 1 which makes a denser, higher textured cookie. One batch of those is the traditional anise, and the other is a vanilla sugar variation that the family of the lady who gave me her mother's springerle roller really likes. Once the tiles are cut, they have to sit and dry for a day before baking.

Our house is going to be smelling like the holidays in a big way in three, two, one.....
