These laser etched rolling pins are A.MAZING! I had been eyeing them since they were first released and doing the rounds earlier this year. I was lucky enough that the awesome Rahest got me one for my birfday. I FINALLY got around to giving it a whirl.

I didn\’t like my chances of getting them to like the pictures, but I was pleasantly surprised how well they turned out.



They come in a huge range of designs, and you can even get them custom made with your own design.

Check them out on etsy.

Here is the recipe I used to make my Catception cookies.

Catception Cookies – Cutout Sugar Cookies
Recipe Type: Cookies
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 30
  • 170g unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 281g Flour (Plus some for rolling)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • *I don\’t like almonds. But trust me, this just brings out the flavours.
  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  2. Line a couple of baking sheets with baking paper.
  3. Combine butter and caster sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg, vanilla and almond and mix until combined.
  5. Gently fold in the salt, flour and baking powder until until combined.
  6. I found to give the cookies the best chance to hold their shape and their pattern, double chilling is best.
  7. Separate the dough into smallish discs and wrap in cling wrap to chill for 30mins.
  8. Once chilled roll your dough just a bit thicker than your desired thickness with a regular rolling pin then firmly roll over with your design pin
  9. Cut your cookies to your desired shape and arrange on your baking paper for baking
  10. Chill your cookies for another 30mins at least before baking
  11. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, until the edges of the cookies just begin to brown.
