Springerle & Molded Cookie Workshop - Cooking at the Cottage Louisville KY

For cookies that are too pretty to eat, learn techniques to properly make traditional European artisan cookies using both single and multiple image presses as well as rolling pins. In this hands on class, you will produce your own Springerle, molded gingerbread and Speculaas cookies.

Springerle cookies are the dense dry anise flavored cookies that my grandmother and maybe your grandmother made with love for the holidays. Don't like the traditional anise? No worries; we will make lemon or orange flavor for you. Molded gingerbread, long an Eastern European favorite, will be baked using an updated, sweeter, softer gingerbread recipe.

I have learned in my many years teaching classes in Louisville that Speculaas cookies were a favorite of many who grew up in or near Louisville. Named Speculaas in Holland and Spekulaitus in Germany, these are the cookies that as kids we called "windmill cookies", one of the few cookies we had that were store-bought. Wait until you taste the ones we bake in class. Speculaas cookies are a thin crisp spice cookie. The version we will make has a complex flavor profile that includes ground almonds, many spices and lemon zest, with sliced almond on their undersides.
