Early in the morning we put the cookies on the tree. My Grandmother made these Springerle cookies then my mother and a few aunts made them. In my generation there were no females and I am the only one making them. But our daughter can make them. Click on the picture and you might be able to see Saint Gabriel and the bottom is Mary with baby. I didn't have time to get a better picture, but on the tree they look like ivory carvings.
