    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    These German spice cookies, traditionally baked at Christmas time are usually cut into heart shapes, decorated with different colors of icing and then hung on the tree. This recipe makes 15 small cookies but is easily doubled. From the Usborne Children's World Cookbook that gramma gave my son when he was first learning to cook.
