After your Springerle cookies have been cut out and air-dried on a parchment lined cookie sheet, we have found a trick to help prevent sticking while baking, even when parchment paper is used. Simply flip the cookie over, image side down, and let the image air-dry for 5-10 minutes. Then, liberally dust the back of the cookie with flour, and turn it image side up again. This helps the cookies remain free and limits the amount of sticking that may occur during baking. Your cookies are then ready to put into the oven. After the cookie has baked, and completely cooled, simply brush the excess flour off with a pastry brush.
