Christmas Tradition

My husband comes from a German immigrant family. Every Christmas his Tante Betty sent a box of Lambertz Printen to each family household. Thanks to The Taste of Germany, this year we renewed that tradition.

The cookies are an intense gingerbread--with bits of crunchy crystalized ginger. The chocolate is dark and rich. This is a treat to be savored slowly in order to appreciate the complex flavors and textures--preferably with a good hot tea or coffee.

A true German comfort food.
