The Conqueror's Cross

IC XC are abbreviations (in both Greek and Slavonic) for the name Jesus Christ. NIKA is a Greek verb that means "conquers" (perhaps "is victorious" is better, though not as grammatically accurate)This 2 1/2" cookie is lightly dusted with gold and silver or hand painted and can be made in lemon, orange or tangerine flavors.

Theotokos
The Virgin Mary is the Theotokos, the mother of Jesus Christ. This 2 1/2" cookie is lightly dusted with gold and silver, or hand painted and can be made in lemon, orange or tangerine flavors.

Prosphoron Seal

Early Christians adopted bread stamps or Prosphron seals  to identify loafs specially prepared for the sacrament of communion. The large square in the center is the "Lamb" and is used for the Eucharist. The small square to the left, is used to commemorate the Theotokos; the square to the right is used to commemorate the nine ranks of saints; the upper square is used to commemorate the living; and the bottom square commemorates reposed Orthodox Christians.


Handmade, hand-painted Springerle Cookies in traditional Anise or Orange Essence. Each cookie is handmade using great care and personal touches, and requires up to three days to complete.

 

These Christmas cookies are 2" square sugar, flour and butter cookies which start off chewy inside. They will keep for weeks, possibly months, but become hard with age. Traditionally they were to be dunked in beverages.

 

Throughout the year we will produce these cookies with seasonal designs and flavors.

Speculaas Cookies are Almond spice cookies in the shape of a Nutcracker, Father Christmas and Saint Nicholas. They are good with tea or hot chocolate.
