springerle molds

I adore these. I wish I had some money to throw around on such a thing. I may just have to buy one a year or something. I don't know if the cookies one makes with them are even tasty (it's rare for me not to like a cookie, however) They are so lovely and folksy and would look particularly sweet all hanging together in a little collection on my kitchen wall.   from here

  3. they are special arent they? I have a few very simple ones. a raggedy ann, and the three bears, theres a papa, mama and a baby! also a round one, but I cant think whats on it! I havent had them out in years! I used to have them hanging year round in my kitchen, that was about 10 years ago though! you make me want to get them out and use them!

  4. Springerle cookies are a special Christmas memory maker. My mother almost always goes to the Austrian bakery and gets a bag of “edible art”. If you have never had one they are a anise-flavored cookie that is crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. http://www.thespringerlebaker.com/
    This site has some lovely pictures of springerles that are so intracately detailed it would be heart breaking to eat one.

  5. Jenn, I just love what you find and share with us. These molds are adorable and just my too. I may have to consider one or two for myself someday.
    Thanks so much for sharing, it’s always so nice to hear from you.

  7. Beautiful! My mother ordered their molds to make us the lovely wedding cookies that Martha
    featured-one bird and another with our initials. The springerle recipe took us some time to figure out- but they were well worth it!! xo
