Personal Notes:
These traditional German Christmas cookies are fun to make once you get the hang of the press. Christmas 2017 Savannah made them for her annual Girl Scout Christmas Cookie Exchange with Troop 3100. I miss those girls as I have been either co-leader or helping with the troop since Savannah was in 1st grade all the way through high school graduation!
