Need a cookie dough for a decorative rolling pin

I bought a few rolling pins that have 3D decorations on them for the holidays
One is snowflakes and the other reindeer
I need a cookie dough with a good consistency that would allow these decorations to be impressed into them and be visible once baked

Or will any cookie recipe do?
( I assume I should avoid chips, nuts or anything else that might impeded the decoration from stamping into the dough)

any suggestions
( the rolling pins did not come with any recipes or suggestions)

Larry

Springerle Shortbread Recipe | King Arthur Flour

I was trying to think of the name of that cookie... springerle, that's it!

A basic sugar cookie recipe should do the trick.

My Great Grandmother made these, her husband was Danish, so alot of the foods from my Mother is Danish/German, the town that he was from was taken by Germany.

Two thoughts,

Look for recipes with little or no leavening, to help keep the image sharp.

If the dough is a little soft sprinkle the pre rolled "blank" with some granulated sugar or granulated sugar with cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice added before doing the final roll with your designer pin. The sugar will help to prevent the pin from sticking.

Some of those would make great "wallpaper" for the inside walls of a gingerbread house!
