Rolling Pin

 

Hi. I won this rolling pin at an auction and I'm not sure what it's used for. Can anyone tell me?

Thanks

Might be a docking rolling pin. Some old world rolling pins were meant for hard doughs or crackers to dock them.

It's called a nobbed, embossed, or notched rolling pin, and is used to imprint designs into dough or clay. I have a similar pin and use it for specialty gingerbread houses during the holiday season.

Thank you. We have never seen a rolling pin like this before. We have a couple that have designs in for when we make Springerle cookies, but not this. Do you know if there's a reason why it has three sections on the roller instead of one piece?

 

Thanks again

In Sweden they use a notched rolling pin similar to this to make Knackebrod, or rye crisps (I think) Linden of Sweden still makes them.
