    Who can say no to chocolates? Dive in to Chocolate Springerle Cookies made with PastryMade Rolling Pins and recipe from Gail's Goodies. 

    Springerle is a type of German biscuit with an embossed design made by pressing a mold onto rolled dough and allowing the impression to dry before baking. They are white, anise-flavored cookies, made from a simple egg-flour-sugar dough.


    3 cups all purpose flour
    ½ cup cocoa
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1 cup butter
    1 ½ cup sugar
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
    3. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
    4. Mix in flour mixture one fourth at a time.
    5. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1-2 hours.
    6. Using PastryMade pins, roll out dough with plain rolling pin to about ¼ inch thick. Make sure the top is floured and use engraved rolling pin to imprint the design on the dough. The final thickness should be about 1/8 inch thick. Use cookie cutters or pastry cutter to cut out cookies.
    7. Bake at 375°F for 10-15 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
    8. Makes about 8 dozen 2½ inch diameter cookies.


    • It's best to work with dough that is still cold and a bit firm. If your dough is room temperature and it will stick to the rolling pin
    • Freezing the cookies before baking helps hold the embossed pattern (For 10-15 mins)
