This morning I baked the springerle that had been drying overnight and then dashed out the door to spend the day with my sister. She had an appointment a couple of hours away and we did a little shopping on the way. Included was a quick stop at Goodwill where we found several treasures including this milk glass plate so I thought I would take a quick picture with it while it was still at my house. The plate is larger than it appears in this picture. It is nearly 13 inches across.
The cookies were flat when I put them in the oven and while in the oven they raised up (unevenly) creating a little "foot" on the bottom which reminds me of the foot on a macaron. Looking at pictures of the springerle that accompanied the recipes I was researching I noted that those ones were similarly uneven. They have good flavor, kind of chewy with a hint of anise. Fun to do something new.
