Why Every Southern Baker Needs This Embossed Rolling Pin this Christmas
When you’re dreaming up your next holiday baking project, be sure to add this handy gadget to your wish list.
While we could go on and on about all the reasons why we love the holiday season, one of our favorite traditions is our annual Christmas baking marathon. When it’s cold outside, you can find us cozied up in our kitchens, whipping up seasonally-inspired cakes, pies, and cookies. Whether we’re baking loaves of Banana Nut Cake to gift to family and friends, signature shortbread for a cookie swap, or something sweet to snack on at home, Mama taught us that it’s always better to bake from scratch. And with this handy tool, baking from scratch just got a whole lot easier.
You can never go wrong with a classic sugar cookie, but the typical royal icing decoration takes lots of time and patience to execute. You have to wait for the cookies to cool completely before you can even start icing, and if you’re in a pinch, there’s no way you’ll be able to complete that stunning Christmas light design before the cookie swap. But what if you could completely decorate your cookies with just a flick of the wrist? Well, with this embossed rolling pin, now you can.
These embossed rolling pins are like stamps for your cookie dough, allowing you to press festive designs into the cookies in one quick swoop. The 3D design leaves festive shapes, like candy canes and snowflakes, etched into your cookie dough. From there, just cut the dough into your desired shapes and bake. With these embossed wooden rolling pins, all the festive decoration you’ll need is done before baking—all you need to do is pop the cookies in the oven.

Although we’ll certainly be using them to decorate our Easy Sugar Cookies, the festive rolling pins aren’t just for cookie dough; they can be used to press patterns into pasta dough, pie crust, pizza dough, and more. Dress up your choice of Christmas pastries with the help of these ready-made stamps.
The embossed rolling pins come in an array of festive Christmas patterns, from stunning snowflakes to regal reindeer to “Merry Christmas” messages. In addition to the selection of patterns, the rolling pins come in a variety of sizes and bundled sets; you can buy a single rolling pin for $10.99, a pack of 2 for $15.99, or a pack of 4 for $26.99. Collect all the patterns or gift a Christmas-ready rolling pin to a baker in your life. The best part? The rolling pins are conveniently available on Amazon.
This holiday season, get the whole family together in the kitchen. These rolling pins are sure to spread Christmas cheer.
