Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, you’ve probably seen the embossed cookie trends sweeping social media. Just how do they get those darling patterns onto those delicious cookies? Well we’ve got the recipes and the 411 on just how to make delicious embossed Christmas cookies.
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.
