Wonderful moulds to make beautiful cookies. Not just the original springerle cookies, but also other recipes, as long as the cookie won't lose shape!!
If anise is not your favorite flavor, change it. Vanilla is always popular, I usually grate orange rind in with the vanilla bean paste. Experiment with different favors.
LorAnn's super strength flavors are used extensively by springerle bakers, especially the natural essential oils - Anise, Peppermint, Orange, and Lemon are all popular flavors. For this size recipe, use 1/8 teaspoon Anise or Peppermint Oil or 1/2 teaspoon Orange or Lemon oil.
This looks so beautiful, all of the lovely mold designs. Will have to try this out after shopping for a mold.
