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

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

 Speculaas cookies are shaped in a wooden mold

The Belgian pastry "speculoos" belongs to a large family of honey cakes .  The dough takes on the shapes of the molds.  On Dec 6th children find a Saint Nicholas speculoos in their shoes. Folklore and good eating go together.  "Speculoos" may be derived from the Latin [speculum] meaning mirror since the cookie is a mirror image of the mold.

Gene, son of a dairy farmer, had collected antique butter molds in the '60s but a Dutch speculaasplank was the first cookie mold he purchased [1970's].  The Wilson family visited a Dutch carver of speculaas molds in Amsterdam in 1975.  At that time the carver said there were perhaps 60-70 such carvers of cookie molds in the Netherlands - today, there are very few.
