Spiced Dutch Windmill Cookies normally formed with a special wooden speculaas mold.
Molded Cookies are cookies that require special molds. These molds give them a unique shape. An interesting element to this collection of molded cookie recipes is that most of the recipes in this category can confidently be associated with a particular region or culture. The molds are specialized equipment that must be purchased in order to properly make the molded cookies, although most of the time these items are not expensive and if they’re not readily available in online stores such as Amazon.com, you can often get them in vintage condition from places that sell vintage kitchen items such as eBay or Etsy.
