fun with wood: springerle rollers

i've posted about my love of springerle cookies before. they are a little bit of heaven delivered in an anise flavored chunk of flour. but they are a serious pain in the kiester to make, so you hardly ever find them outside of Germany. most folks won't take the time to make them. that's how i inherited an ooold springerle roller from one of our really good friends. and this winter, i finally bit the bullet and ordered a very ornate and detailed roller molded from an ancient roller, probably 16th century or so. i was getting tired of them being stuffed away in a cabinet. these are pieces of art, so i decided to make a rack to display them.

the roller that started it all, a nice one from a specialty cooking store sits on the left. the behemoth in the center is my new roller i ordered from House on the Hill, my online source for some great cookie molds i've purchased in the past. and on the right is karin's roller, given to her by her mom, and then passed on to me.

nice addition to the kitchen decor, even if i do say so myself.

Aaaaah, decorating with kitchen tools. You are such a foodie geek! And I mean that in a nice way.
