ESTABLISH a Family Tradition of Creating Edible-Art Cookies!

Audrey W. 11/20/16 writes "My daughters 
LOVE molding the 
cookies and people 
can't believe that 
children were able to 
make such amazing 
cookies. 

Thanks for 
the beautiful 
work you do. 
It has truly  
enhanced our 
family life."
 "I just 
wanted to let
you know that
 my cousin 
and I got 
together 
and made 
springerles with your beautiful cookie molds - it bought back such fond memories of my Mother and I making these cookies!      
We were able to pass this tradition on to our children which meant a lot to both of us."
