The moulds for these traditional German biscuits can be hard to find, but check specialty cookware stores and antique shops.
We sell these molds on our web store if anyone is interested. http://www.clockshop.com.au/?Kitchen-Accessories/Traditional-German;Dept;3162 - 05 Feb 2014
UPDATE! My mother called a few weeks ago and mentioned that she had tried making a variation for Valentine's Day with the zest of an orange and 1/8 tsp orange oil. AMAZING! and beautiful pressed with a springerle mold and then cut with a heart shaped cookie cutter! - 21 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was so daunted to make this... my fiance had made these beautiful wooden moulds so I could make these cookies for Christmas this year, and I was afraid to use them. I decided to make a preliminary batch this weekend, just to see if I could do it without embarassing myself. They turned out BEAUTIFULLY. They're almost too pretty to eat, but of course you must try them, and are they ever good!!! I love them with Chai tea. I'll be making another batch for the holidays, and will post pictures next time! - 17 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
