Our Almerle cookies are similar in texture to our Springerle cookies, but almond oil is used rather than anise oil. While the flavor is still strong, the milder almond taste appeals to many who find the black-licorice flavor of anise to be overwhelming or distasteful.
The recipe for our bestselling Hildegard Gingerbread cookies originated from St. Hildegard herself. Whether or not they live up to St. Hildegard’s claim to “slow the aging process, create a cheerful countenance, lighten a heavy heart, and release intelligence,” these crunchy cookies are sure to delight those who enjoy the warm flavors of almonds, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
The spicy yet soothing aromas of ginger and cinnamon are sure to entice those who open a package of our Gingersnap cookies. Each sphere of gingersnap cookie dough is rolled in finely granulated sugar; when baked, it crackles. The resulting cookie is crispy and crunchy with just the right amount of sweetness and spice.
Each of our Shortbread cookies is sprinkled with colored sugar before baking to give the cookie a fun and festive look. These buttery cookies, which are sweet but not too sweet, are sure to melt in your mouth.
The intense lemon flavor in our Simply Lemon cookies is derived chiefly from the zest and juice of fresh lemons. The finely granulated sugar that coats the outside of each of these cookies makes them neither too tart nor too sweet. The crisp exterior of each cookie quickly gives way to a chewy center. It is difficult to eat just one of these refreshing, yet comforting, cookies.
Angel cookies are mildly-flavored cookies with a crispy texture. Prior to baking, each cookie is rolled in finely granulated sugar to ensure the lightly sweet taste. Angel cookies pair well with hot cocoa and flavored coffees.
