THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS COOKIES ARE NOW ONLINE!! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT ORDERING INFO !!
Thanksgiving cookie order deadline is Wednesday, November 13th, at midnight.
Christmas cookie order deadline is Sunday, December 1st at midnight.
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS COOKIES TOGETHER ON AN ORDER. They must ship separately, and we must charge shipping for each order. You will need to order Thanksgiving and Christmas cookies on two separate orders.
Old-Fashioned Favorites (pfeffernusse, gingerbread tiles) will only be available for Christmas orders. We do not make them for Thanksgiving, but they will be on the site so you can order them for Christmas. Please DO NOT put them on your Thanksgiving order.
NEW THIS YEAR: we will be offering gingersnaps during the Thanksgiving season, so those can be placed on Thanksgiving orders.
Don't forget the gift messages! If you send the cookies to a loved one, they will not know who they're from unless you type a gift message into that area of the order form.
ALL CHRISTMAS COOKIE ORDERS WILL SHIP BEGINNING DEC. 1 to arrive in time for Christmas. If you place your order early, that does NOT mean you will get it early UNLESS you tell us a "specific ship date". If you need your order by a certain date, please list that date under the "special instructions" part of the order form. If no specific ship date is requested, we will guarantee Christmas delivery.
We do apologize, but we have no way of looking up your order to see when it will ship. Unless you request a specific ship date, we can only say that it will ship between Dec. 1 and Christmas.
AND LASTLY: We would like to sincerely thank you for your order, whether you are a first-time customer or someone who has been with us for 20 years. We truly love what we do, and we love to make people happy with our cookies. We wish you and yours the very warmest and most joyful of holiday seasons.
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. These are actual springerle cookies, but have been cured to harden for many months, and are ribboned with pretty gold ribbon. They are hard, but still a breakable item.
With proper care they will keep for many years as beautiful adornments on your Christmas tree, or as decorations in your home. We have had some in a shadow box for about eight years now! We do enclose detailed, simple care instructions with each order. We have many hundreds of designs, and ask that you allow us to choose a nice mix for you.
Designs will vary greatly, and include people scenes, animals, fruits and flowers, holidays, and many other traditional motifs. We will NOT duplicate any designs in your order. Each order comes with a brochure on the history of springerle cookies.
Try these on a feather tree with traditional popcorn garland...simple, elegant, and gorgeous! The play of light and shadow within the branches of a Christmas tree serves to exquisitely highlight the designs of these ornaments. We are sure you will love them!
We offer the two-dozen quantity at a significant savings so you can decorate a whole feather tree in springerle ornaments, as pictured on our home page
