Ever since I first tasted a springerle, (which honestly was less than ten years ago) I fell in loooove with anise flavored cookies. There is something about the whole “flavor explosion” thing that happens –from just a touch of anise oil– that really drives me over the edge.
With these, I tried out a flour mix by Namaste Foods: Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend… and had great success making them turn out as if I had used all purpose flour. This made me quite happy.
If you adore anise flavor, and are looking for a quick fragrant bite of awesomeness… then these are the cookies for you. Try them without the glaze for a more sophisticated “dipping” cookie.
