Or you’re looking at your list of to-dos and realizing that you just don’t have time to do the traditional “sugar cookie for Santa” thing. Whatever the reason for your time and energy shortage, I’ve found the fix to your cookie problem: embossed rolling pins. Seriously.

Not only are embossed rolling pins ridiculously easy to use, but they create cookies that look delicate and beautiful with minimal effort. Simply make your dough and refrigerate it. Then roll it to the desired thickness with a regular rolling pin. Next, apply even pressure and roll the embossed pin over the top to create the design. From there you can go as fancy or as simple as you’d like! Dip the cookies in chocolate, use the rolling pin to emboss a layer of fondant, whatever floats your boat.

You can grab a beautiful set with reindeer and Christmas symbols here, a set of two (one with trees and the other snowflakes) here, a Thanksgiving-themed pin here, or a delicate paisley pattern pin here. Grab one. Grab them all! Each is sure to create delicate and delicious cookies.

If you're someone who loves to bake, you need to use embossed rolling pins. They create the cutest patterns for cookies and they are easy to use!

Now that you have your rolling pins, it’s time to get your recipes right! These pins work best with doughs that are relatively firm like a shortbread or sugar cookie. If you want your cookies to be a little sweeter, I’d suggest making a marshmallow fondant and using the rolling pin on that to top off your cookies.
