Springerles! [Dec. 6th, 2007|06:10 pm]

So, I recently came to discover that my favorite Christmas childhood cookie my grandma always made me, the Springerle, is not only period, but there's a wide variety of extent molds. I'm having a hard time finding anything, however, other than anecdotal tales of Springerles in cookbooks and some repilca molds with no dates associated with them.

Can anyone point me at some sources for this wonderful discovery?

I don't have any recipes, but I do have a good pointer to lots of extant molds.

Bildindex is your friend,
Go here http://www.bildindex.de/

Click on Orte and then follow the path below to a whole bunch of period backing molds.

Orte / N / Nürnberg / Sammlungen / Germanisches Nationalmuseum / Kunstgewerbe / Hausgerät / Backgerät / Backmodeln / ab 1445

I also wrote a primer on Bildindex, you might find that useful
