Every so often, technology allows people to revisit some of their favorite artwork of the past, and these 3D cookies modeled after M.C. Escher’s graphic designs are no exception. Crafted using cutting edge 3D printing techniques and a plain old cookie recipe, the designs offer a taste of Escher’s iconic works of art in a whole knew way.

Using custom made 3D print rollers, this video made by freelance mathematical sculptor/designer George Hart gives viewers detailed instructions on how to eat this favorite work of art. By first using a 3D printer to chisel out designs onto textured rollers, Hart’s step-by-step video takes people from the conception to inception of these neat party treats.

After combining all the ingredients for a batch of tasty cookies, Hart uses the custom-made Escher roller to imprint his dough and voilà: Escher cookies are born! Dutch graphic designers may not be your thing but fear not, I’m sure it won’t be long before we see some Kanye West or Kim Kardashian-inspired snacks too.
