The fancy schmancy roller was more difficult than I anticipated. It will take a little practice to figure out the right thickness to roll the dough so the imprint takes.

Springerle Cookies

About a 1/4 inch seems right, but you have to press pretty hard while rolling to get a good impression. The place I ordered from is in Poland, and it took a long time to get here last year when I purchased it, but they do have an amazing selection.
I also tried my sole Springerle mold I bought on whim a long time ago and just found again, and I really like it. I just might have to splurge on a few more.

The recipe I used was from KAF. It’s good, a delicate, not overly sweet cookie which I like, but I think I’d like one with almond and lemon zest, so I’ll be playing with that more.

    You may already have these but you can buy little wooden strips to lay out on two sides of your dough so you can roll the dough the exact depth needed. With my springerle molds, some of them need different depths of dough. I would never get it right without the little measuring strips.

      I didn’t know that, but I did know you could buy rolling pins with height spacers on them. Thanks for the tip!
