Christmas Spiced Biscuits – Embossed Rolling Pin Biscuit Recipe

November 10, 2019Sew White

The delicious iconic festive flavours are in my Christmas Spiced Biscuits. The best Embossed Rolling Pin Biscuit Recipe to keep the pattern when cooking.

I love my embossed rolling pin! The pattern is so super cute and being that it is Christmasssy I have to make the most of it in November and December. I worked on a few recipes to try and get the dough perfect to hold the shape from the rolling pin and this is it. Luckily the ones that didn’t work I ate the evidence of.

The best tip I can give for this recipe is keep the dough cold. If it’s cold the pattern with stay when it’s cooked. When it goes from the cold fridge to the oven it doesn’t get a chance to spread before the outer layers have cooked and hardened. Also try not to work the dough too much. Once it rolled out the first time roll the rolling pin over and cut out as many biscuits as you can. With the remaining off cuts stack them roll them out again. Put it back in the fridge to get it get it cold again if you are going to use the embossed rolling pin on it.

This recipe also works really well for for making cookie cutter biscuits

I love how these biscuits came out. The embossed rolling pin really left a beautiful pattern which cooked without distorting it. I love it. They also taste incredible. The smell of the Christmas spices really filled the kitchen which makes them a pleasure to make. When you cook them make sure you take them out before they go golden brown as they will dry really hard. Unless you dip them in tea they won’t be easy to bite. This recipe also works really well for icing biscuits.

Ingredients

  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 0.5 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 400 g plain flour

Instructions

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

  2. Mix in the egg and vanilla.

  3. Mix in the spices.

  4. Sieve in the flour and combine into a dough.

  5. Once the dough has pulled together wrap it in cling film and pop it in for 30 minutes.

  6. Roll out the dough with the embossed rolling pin to just shy of a 1cm thickness.

  7. Cut out the shapes you want and pop the pieces on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray.

  8. Pop the cut out dough back into the fridge for 30 minutes.

  9. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees/160 degrees fan oven.

  10. Pop the biscuits in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the dough is firm to the touch and just starting to go light brown.

  11. You don’t want them going golden brown or they will dry too hard. You can see how pale the finished biscuits are above.
  12. Leave to cool on a cooling rack and once cold store in an air tight container.

    Is it really weird that I have a wishlist of different embossed rolling pins…I love the idea of them but I’ve always been worried that the pattern won’t stay when the cookies are baked.
    Yours look amazing! I know what I’m treating myself to this festive season…5 stars

    Seems like I can’t escape Christmas recipes – I’ve even done one myself! Love the definition on your biscuits. I have a rolling pin for similar, but I’ve never managed to get anything as good as these.5 stars

      It took some working out to get it crisp but it definitely works now. I can’t wait to make more! Merry Christmas.

    These would be so wonderful at a cookie/biscuit swap or to package up as gifts, or even to send in a package (they’d travel well)! Thanks for the lovely recipe; my mother has an embossed rolling pin and they are so much fun!5 stars
