IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR COOKIES TO STAY SOFT FOR THE HOLIDAY, WE SUGGEST REMOVING THEM FROM ANY PAPER PACKAGING AND PUTTING THEM IN AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER AND FREEZING THEM! THEY THAW BEAUTIFULLY IF THAWED ON A RACK.
WE SHIP YOUR COOKIES THE DAY THEY ARE BAKED: THEY LEAVE OUR KITCHEN SOFT. TRY AS WE MIGHT, WE CANNOT CONTROL SHIPPING DELAYS: IF YOUR COOKIES ARRIVE HARD, PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT SPRINGERLE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE VERY HARD DUNKING COOKIES (LIKE BISCOTTI). TO SOFTEN, PUT A PIECE OF BREAD OR APPLE IN A CONTAINER WITH THE COOKIES, CHANGING AS NEEDED. WE DO SHIP PRIORITY MAIL: USUALLY 3-5 DAYS NATIONWIDE, BUT UNFORTUNATELY DELAYS ARE WORLDWIDE. WE SO APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE IN THIS UNUSUAL TIME.
Our ornaments are made of a very durable volcanic ash/paper pulp mix and are hand-painted by Lancaster County artists using traditional, rich Pennsylvania Dutch colors.
Springerle cookies were among the traditional ornaments used to adorn Pennsylvania German tabletop trees. Ours are handmade, one at a time, as they have been for hundreds of years.
Welcome to the Springerle House
Welcome to the Springerle House, where we continue the tradition of making springerle cookies in historic Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Our family has been making springerle cookies here in the heart of PA Dutch Country for over 100 years. We love what we do, and hope you´ll enjoy our cookies and ornaments as much as we enjoy making them. Thanks for visiting our site...we hope you enjoy this taste of the past!
