Gorgeous springerle rolling pin

sheilajoyce_gwDecember 5, 2012

If you have any cooks on your Christmas list, let me recommend what I just saw at the King Arthur's site, a exquisite springerle rolling pin to bake picture cookies. I have had my springerle rolling pin for over 40 years, but this one is just so much more beautiful and a worthy gift. It is pricey at about $64, but something special like this is perfect for a gift at the holidays.

I saw that pin and drooled. I've been making springerle (or trying to)for about ten years and I use a flat wooden hand-carved mold that has six pictures on it. I've never used a rolling pin. I would think it would be more difficult than a flat mold.

It's a very time consuming job to make these cookies, but so enjoyable to put on a plate and hear people say "Did you make these?" I love the anise taste with a cup of coffee.

I have always used the rolling pin. I roll out the dough thicker than I want it with a regular rolling pin, then I slowly and very firmly roll the springerle pin over the dough, cut them into squares with a pizza cutter, and voila. I have always thought the little molds would take longer.

I think you need to put one on your Christmas list!

Thanks. When will you be sending it to me? I'll watch in the mail. LOL

My dough is usually fairly stiff, and I roll it probably thinner than I should. Sometimes it is difficult to get that impression in and I have been know to use a very small hammer. I do cut mine with the pizza cutter or with my metal bench scraper. My mold is about 5 by 7 and has six pictures.

They are lovely cookies.
