- Linzer – Tortes made with a buttery ground nut crust and a raspberry preserve filling.
- Pfeffernusse – German for “pepper nut,” these hard, spiced cookies are the perfect companion to a warm winter drink.
- Springerle – These pale, anise-flavored cookies are beautifully embossed with images of century-old folklore.
