Impressive mold of the kindly saint, who was the

forerunner of Santa Claus. From the 1600’s or 1700’s.

Good full-bodied figure and a good cookie eating size.

2 1⁄2" x 4 1⁄4"  


4th century Asia Minor (now Turkey). One story tells of the kindly saint saving three young women from being sold into slavery for lack of dowries. Saint Nicholas tossed 3 bags of gold into the window where they landed on socks and shoes, which led to the custom of leaving stockings and shoes to be filled on his feast day,December 6th.

In Europe, St. Nicholas day is still widely celebrated. St. Nicholas , who delivers fruits, nuts and sweets to deserving children, travels with Krampus, who scares naughty children and threatens them with birch

branches. The Americanized Santa Claus is a much jollier and romanticized version of Saint Nicholas who is unaccompanied by a frightening creature.

Cookie is 2" x 4"

House on the Hill creates beautiful cookie molds that are resin replicas of historic and newer hand carved wooden molds. For years, the carved cookie mold has been used to create intricately detailed pieces of edible artwork that are adored and enjoyed whereever they are served.  They add a touch of history and tradition that makes any celebration even more special, including Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings, anniversaries, births, and birthdays. 


These molds are fully functional resin composite molds individually hand poured and hand finished in the USA. (Please note, these are not wood, but are replicas that resemble wood).


Used to make Springerle cookies, and for cookie recipes that are designed for use in cookie molds. Recipes that are proportionately high in fat, sugar and leavening will not maintain the imprinted design when the cookies are baked. Also used for marzipan creations, fondant and decorating cakes, as well as for craft molds. 


Many use these as beautiful kitchen and home decorations.
