    Cupcake-Princess's Note:

    I got this delicious German spice cookie recipe from a local newspaper. Instead of using light molasses like the recipe calls for, I use regular molasses beacause I like the darker color.

      Yum! At first glance they look too sweet and maybe like a bon bon, then they hit your mouth. I made this recipe and they did not last the night. All were devoured. Subtle flavor almost like a tea or coffee cake. My words are NOT giving fair measure to their allure. Try some. You will want more. :) I did not have anise seeds so I substituted with half a measure of tarragon instead. Still very yummy.

      The perfect Christmas cookie! Spicy bite with a little heat! I did not have any allspice, so I substituted cardamom. This will be a new staple in my holiday baking! Thanks for posting!
