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.
- 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.
- Preheat the oven to 170°C.
- Line a couple of baking sheets with baking paper.
- Combine butter and caster sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
- Add the egg, vanilla and almond and mix until combined.
- Gently fold in the salt, flour and baking powder until until combined.
- I found to give the cookies the best chance to hold their shape and their pattern, double chilling is best.
- Separate the dough into smallish discs and wrap in cling wrap to chill for 30mins.
- 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
- Cut your cookies to your desired shape and arrange on your baking paper for baking
- Chill your cookies for another 30mins at least before baking
- Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, until the edges of the cookies just begin to brown.
