    Irmgard's Note:

    This is a Swiss cookie which is made at Christmas time. It is a lovely combination of chocolate and spice and has the added bonus of being both dairy and gluten-free, ideal for those who have dietary issues. Please note: Refrigeration and drying times are included in the cooking time. From Canadian Living Magazine.
