    These German Christmas biscuits are simple to make and taste fantastic. A buttery almond biscuit dough is formed into crescents, baked and then tossed in vanilla sugar.

    This is an old German recipe for aniseed flavoured biscuits which belonged to my mother-in-law. I've been baking these for the years at Christmas! Look for a springerle rolling pin in antique or specialty shops.
