Yes, I make them, give them away, and am pretty sure they are still around the next Christmas since no one else likes them but me. They are Springerle Cookies, and my mother's parents always had them around at Christmas. If you have the special rolling pin to make the patterns on the top, you can make them look almost as good as the ones they bought. The are flavored with Anise and are dried until they are dense as only a brick can be. You can either drunk them in hot Coffee or Tea (my choice) or gum them to bits like those super messy teething cookies my kids used to love. Delightful!
***Ooops - I appear to have left the cord I use to transfer the pictures from my camera to my computer in Tulsa - but by tomorrow I'll figure this out and show some pictures of this attractive cookie.
