Here is a reinvention of the traditional Christmas German Springerle into a beautiful, sparkly Mother's Day version. Instead of the traditional anise seeds, we added rose water and crushed rose petals to the springerle dough.
Brushing on a touch of pink disco dust to the finished cookie makes them extra special.
