Instructions for Use:
This rolling pin creates a cuneiform script relief and will roll the impression on to the gingerbread dough beautifully, without sticking or pulling the dough up, if you work with the dough chilled and dust a bit of flour on the pin or dough surface prior to rolling. See the images below for the end result! Don’t forget to use the Tavola gingerbread recipe and baking instructions for this pin as the dough is firm and will hold the impressions beautifully during baking.
