Ka'ik Cookie Mold
These gorgeous cookie molds are specially made to decorate Lebanese ka’ik (or ka’ak) spiced sweet breads. The molds are of solid maple, with a perfect cut design on every one. An artisanal mold that will last a lifetime, this one is worthy to be passed to next generations to inspire carrying on the Lebanese ka’ik baking tradition.
Yeasted ka’ik dough is pressed into the mold, then gently pulled off to reveal a beautiful flower shape. Be sure to press down hard when you press your ka’ik dough ball into the mold, to ensure the imprint will hold during baking.
Baking ka’ik is nostalgic in all of the best ways, fragrant with the aromas of mahleb and anise many of us know from growing up with family who baked these soft, glorious delights at Easter time. The mold also works beautifully to imprint cut out sugar cookies, fondant for cake decorating, and anything else you can dream up.
To care for the mold, brush with olive or any neutral oil for first use, to more easily release the pressed dough. To clean, wash gently with warm water and dry thoroughly.
