These sound like rosettes or timbales which use a mold on a handle diped in the batter the put into oil to fry.  great cookies and you can find the molds all over.  We used to make them for special occasions.

Rumpolt has recipes that call for a brass "model" or pattern, that you dip into batter and fry.  My mother in law used to make cookies like that every Christmas.

Gebackens 5. Mach ein Teig mit Wein vnd Eiern an/ oder mit lauter Milch. Stoß den Messing Model in heisse Butter/ daß er warm wirt/ truckne jhn wol ab/ stoß das Eisen in Teig/ daß er nicht vber das Eisen gehet/ halts gegen dem Feuwer/ daß fein trucken wirt an dem Eisen/ vnd wenns trucken ist/ so stoß flugs in heisse Butter/ so wirt der Teig vom Eisen lassen/ backs geschwindt auß/ legs auff ein Bret oder Sib.

5. Make a dough with wine and eggs/ or with clean milk. Push the brass mold (pattern) in hot butter/ so it becomes warm/ dry it well/ push the iron in the dough/ that it does not go over the iron/ hold against the fire/ that it will dry nicely on the iron/ and when dry, then push quickly in hot butter/ like this will the dough leave from the iron/ fry quickly/ lay on a clean board or sieve.

There are also recipes that call for a Rädtlein or little wheel to cut dough, like a pastry cutter.  It could be used for simple shapes for cookies or cakes.
