Speculoos cookies, in large and small sizes, were made for centuries using cookie boards or 'prints’ as they are called in technical jargon.

Cutting cookie prints is a form of folk art that flourished in the 17th and 18th centuries but unfortunately disappeared under influence of modernization and mechanization.
