I have a lovely collection of sprengerle molds, many of which are hanging on the wall in my entrance way to my apartment. I started collecting them when I was writing my Xmas cookie book. My favorite is an antique mold of a bear from Switzerland. It is hand carved from wood as is the pear mold which is carved from pear wood. I was told by a baker in Switzerland that during the winter months, when bakers had more time, they would create these unique molds.Recently I received an e-mail from Patrice Romzick offering three terrific you tube videos on the technique of making springerle cookies. It is so helpful to see the exact technique for making these decorative cookies so that they unmold perfectly so I'm sharing them here. Time to get started so they will be ready for the holidays! And if you're starting your own collection, Patrice has a website that carries many molds and equipment for making the springerle.
