The shape of these cookies, created using a walnut mold, gives a hint at what's sandwiched within.

    This is my second year making these delicious cookies. I love the flavors in the dough and the chocolate walnut filling. I make these cookies in the fall for gifts, instead of waiting for Christmas! Thanks again Martha for another awesome recipe!

    I made these cookies twice + here R some helpful tips. Chill dough @ least 3 hrs. to make them easier to un-mold I worked in batches + left half of dough in fridge while working with other half. Be sure to freeze them 1 hr . and I usually trim the edges while frozen . Couldn't taste the walnut liqueur. Filling is dry. Cookie tastes dryer when sandwiched and its kinda thick anyways. I prefer to just leave the halves and eat them as such, You get more like that anyways.

    Please help....I ordered the gorgeous molds from House on the Hill and couldn't notice that the "official" recipe of the cookie is a tad different from Martha's. did anyone try both?? Which is better? How do they compare? Any input is appreciated! :)

    You can buy the walnut molder at KING ARTHUR's website. I bought mine a year ago. The molder has a teflon coating. They also have a recipe for the cookies. Thanks Bessie Yap-Sarmiento

    Did anyone else find it impossible to get these out of the mold? I used a walnut shaped plastic candy mold (used for chocolates) and just could not get the dough out of the mold. And yes, I did dust with powdered sugar first. I ended up just rolling them into balls with my hands. Didn't want to sink the $$$ into the springerle mold (which wasn't available at the time anyway). did that mold make it easier?

    I used Frangelico (hazelnut liquer) and couldn't even taste it. Did anyone use the walnut liquer? Is it worth it?

    I had to wait for both the walnut mold and the snowman and little boy mold, but they came sooner than promised. This is a small company, from what I can gather, and they tried to keep up with the demand. By the way, the snowman springerle cookie is not only beautiful but a delicious "dunking" cookie.
