The Baking Club is only a week into our month with Stella Parks’ BraveTart, but members have wasted no time in baking up batches of classic store-bought treats, like Korena Vine’s homemade Oreos (shown below).

Stella Parks, herself(!), has been busy answering all of our club's many questions, but we’ve learned a lot from each other, too. For example, Parks uses an embossed rolling pin to create a particularly enticing pattern on her Homemade Oreos (which grace the cover of her cookbook). But if you don’t already have one, we've picked up a couple of smart alternatives for creating your own patterned cookies:

  • Korena Vine used the dull edge of a cookie cutter to gently stamp a random pattern over the rolled-out dough (above photo).
  • Rosanne Leto used the back of a food processor pusher (the part with concentric rings) to emboss her cookies.
