House on the Hill cookie molds are fully functional tools that are used to press cookies or crafts, but are beautiful on their own as display pieces on walls or on easels or as decorations on a tree.
These cookie molds allow all of us to bake beautiful cookies that remind us of family traditions, history and culture. Many of the original molds, now in museums and private collections, were carved in clay, wood or metal and are as old as 500 years. The “picture” cookies cast from these molds were used to tell stories visually when most people were unable to read or write. They celebrate weddings, births, victories, and holidays. Today contemporary methods have enabled us to replicate these historic molds and produce copies for your enjoyment and use.
House on the Hill has also created original cookie molds, designed and carved in a traditional style, to its product selection.
Our products are proudly made in the USA.
House on the Hill cookie molds are made of a resin and wood composite. Each mold is individually hand cast and carefully hand finished in the USA. Most of our molds are replicas of antique carvings from private collections and museums, some dating as far back as the 1600’s. Since the original carvings have imperfections such as surface cracks and worm holes, our replicas will mimic these characteristics which are not flaws. They add a sense of authenticity and charm to our cookie molds. We also manufacture original in house designs with a nod to tradition.
