I used several items I used to create the textures in these cookies:

  • For the 4 cookies with knitted textures, I used silicone texture mats from Ellam Sugarcraft
  • The waffle-type and fish scale textures are made with a metal cookie stamp by Nordic Ware
  • The cobblestone texture is made by a texture mat from FMM
  • The two small brooches in the center (and the small brooch in the lower left corner) are made with a Karen Davies silicone mold
  • The rose on the far right is made with a Wilton silicone cake tool
  • The rib cage is from a Halloween silicone mold from The Cookie Countess
  • The Celtic knotwork was made with a First Impressions mold
  • The small cabbage peony is from Molds on etsy.com
  • The rose on the bottom is made with a discontinued Martha Stewart silicone mold
  • The sequin texture is made a Karen Davies sequins cupcake mold

I used a traditional springerle recipe for these cookies and kept them plain because I am fascinated by the stark color of the baked cookies.

Oh I love these!! Did you use mats or molds (both?) or even some other way to create these beautiful cookies? Awesome work!!

All of the above!  I used texture mats, molds, and a few metal cookie stamps.  Thank you!

So since you used the Springerle cookie recipe, after you removed the cookies from the molds, did you let them rest for 24hrs before baking them to maintain the relief?  

I bake Springerle every Christmas and I've never thought to create marvelous cookies such as yours with the varieties of molds you've used.    Beautiful.   Pip

P.S.  How thick did you make your cookies?

Yes, I did leave the cookies rest after molding.  The recipe I used calls for 8 to 12 hours of resting, so these rested for almost 12 hours.

I rolled the cookies to about 3/8-inch before molding them.
