10/8/2010: "The Windmill and Sinterklaus cookie molds arrived, and I must say they were better than the pictures,  most impressive.  I used the recipe for Speculaas, and following the instructions I got quite good at tapping out the molded cookies.  They were a great hit."

"Gene, I got your speculaas boards yesterday.  How nice they are - rooster and hen on nest!  I've seen people's eyes light up like they were glimpsing some long lost childhood moment when I've presented them with some speculaas or springerle in the past.  I think they will even light up brighter when I give them some from your molds."  M.L.S.

Gene had collected antique butter molds in the '60s but a Dutch speculaasplank was the first cookie mold he purchased [1970's].  He first visited with a Dutch street vendor and carver of speculaas molds in Amsterdam in 1977.  At that time the carver said there were 60-70 such carvers of cookie molds in the Netherlands.

The individual fragrant cookies are called speculaasjes.
The Dutch word "speculaas" comes from speculum (mirror).
The cookies are associated with the Dutch feast of Sinterklaas
  and are a favorite German and Dutch cookie at Christmas.
