Here are some images of recently-made springerle. These first photos show the pressed dough before baking. One of the fun things about making springerle is that there are many molds available that are historical copies of molds hundreds of years old, and biblical subject matter was common with these cookies. There are many theologically interesting molds! Below is a “Lamb sacrificial.”
Here are a few Christmas molds that I got from this website. Ken Hamilton has a very wide range of great molds.
This is an unbaked cookie made from a mold I made myself, using food safe silicone putty and a bronze medallion. I love the architectural detail on this.
More Ken Hamilton molds… scenes from the life of Christ. He has several molds that feature biblical scenes. This particular mold has 16 images and is available in two different sizes. Scroll down near the bottom of this page to see these different molds.
…And finally, here are some of the cookies, baked. I think I might be painting up some of these!
