Cookies Made Fancy with the @empossedpin #empossedpin

This beautiful Paisley embossed rolling pin from @embossedpin is not only so stunning you'll want to keep it on display (no junk drawer designation here!) but the solid beech wood cleans easily and works on even the softest, most finicky dough. I tried it on my mom's shortbread recipe (notorious for getting stuck in cookie cutters) and the design imprinted cleanly and there was almost no cleanup - simply using a pastry brush to clean off the flour and a quick wipe with a damp sponge and it's good to go again!

I'll let you in on a little secret - I hate rolling dough out. I don't know why. Maybe I can't get the consistency just right, I make the dough too thin, something just doesn't work. However, I'm also a sucker for beautiful things, especially those made of wood. When I was approached by Embossed to test and review their rolling pins, I was a little apprehensive as to how they'd work - after all, if I have trouble with a smooth rolling pin, this would spell disaster, right?

Thankfully, I was wrong - very wrong. These rolling pins, though on the shorter side, are etched to the perfect depth. Not too shallow where the print (I had a fantastic paisley print one, but they make a variety of styles) won't show up, but not so deep the dough sticks, tears and makes a mess. I used this pin on my mom's shortbread cookie dough, which is notorious for sticking, and I had absolutely no problems after I dusted the dough with flour. The print stayed clear and crisp even after baking, and I got so many compliments on the cookies! The other thing was these rolling pins are incredibly easy to clean. A quick wipe with a damp cloth took off the flour from the external surface, while anything stuck in the crannies (I had maybe 2 clumps) I let dry and brushed off with a pastry brush. The pin is so beautiful it stays on my counter permanently and because the beech wood of the embossed rolling pin is not stained or treated (they are 100% food-safe and free of BPA or any other toxic substances) I don't have to worry about it discolouring, flaking, leaching or otherwise looking sad and forlorn. I am currently looking at finding an easel stand for it so it can be in the pride of place.

If you love beauty and function in a simple and easy to use package, I highly recommend one of these rolling pins from Embossed. You can also feel great knowing you're supporting a small business invested in making beautiful things for the every day person that will last a lifetime!
