Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year.
The year is 4706 on the Chinese Calendar, this is the year of the Ox.
I don't have any Ox cookie molds, only a Foo Dog, Hen and Koi which I bought a couple of years ago.

The Koi is my favorite (as you'll see, by the number of photos of the Koi cookies.)
I use my favorite shortbread cookie dough. The trick is to grease (OR use cooking oil spray on) the inside of the mold, then dust with all purpose flour before packing the shortbread dough in.
Then invert the mold and give it a good, hard downward whack on the counter, or a chopping block to loosen the dough from the mold. The molded dough is then baked on an ungreased cookie sheet until it is firm, and barely golden colored.
If you are interested, I bought mine here:
They are not expensive at all.
When I bought my cookie molds I also bought some Moon Cake molds.
