|Meges||RE: Henry/Frank Lienhardt|
My father was half German. At Christmas we loved Lienhardts for it was full of zimsterne and springerles, as well as the clear candy toys. I am talking about the period of late thirties and early forties. I moved away about 1945 and then we really had to scratch to find the Christmas goodies. One of my daughters learned to make Zimsterne and supplies us all at Christmas with these delectable almond stars to this day. The springerlies could be used to decorate the tree but what my father liked to do was dunk them in coffee and eat them. They had to be fresh for they harden up quickly. I am sure my family patronized the bakery at other times but it is Christmas I remember best.

Henry is gone and Frank is there. I also posted a memorial to his father, Benedict. I don't know how I made such an error. Blame it on old age.
I am particularly interested in this family for I remember their sweet shop in Wayne where I grew up. The German Christmas candies were very special.
