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."    - P. Vandyke, VA

Gene had collected antique butter molds in the '60s but a Dutch speculaasplank was the first cookie mold he purchased [1970's].  The Wilson family first visited a Dutch street vendor and carver of speculaas molds in Amsterdam in 1975.  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, especially at Christmas.

13 Oct '10:  "I am getting ready for my 4th year of making Speculaas.  The boards I purchased from you are great, and the tricks you provided in the booklet are a lifesaver - following instructions has allowed me to produce perfectly molded cookies right from the start!  Your molds are so much better than anything I see in the shops."  Cassandra
