The dough is made, then we pressed the molds into the dough and cut them out and placed them on parchment papers. They have to dry and then get baked with the hopes that the designs hold! I hope this works out. They are a tradition cookie that date back to the 1600's. You can read about them on the website from House on the Hill here.....
There you can see the molds and a video of how these cookies are made at the bottom of that page. Just amazing!!!!! It is a bit of a process and I am hoping that my dough was good, because there are many things that can wrong after all that and the cookies do not work out. Fingers and toes crossed that they will! :) You can see the one mold in the top of the picture, for the round ones there are 4 in the mold and for the bigger one, there are 24 different molds. Anyways.......enjoy! I will let you know if the cookies bake up as pretty and good as they look now!
