I love graham crackers and recently shared the recipe to make homemade grammies .  Easy and infinitely better than the blue box of cookies that shall not be named.  Well, I got my embossed rolling pin. Check out my fancy schmancy graham crackers.  Takes these bad boys to a whole new level.

I found embossed rolling pins on both Etsy and Amazon.  I like geometrics but there are a bajillion designs available including cartoon characters, flowers, hearts, just about anything you can imagine.

My pin is approximately 6 inches in width.  My method is to roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness, chill for a couple of minutes and then use the embossed pin for the last roll.  Cut the dough into 6 inches strips or the approximate width of the pin.  Press firm enough to create the embossed pattern and roll just once. STAMPTASTIC!

    Perfect way to showcase your graham crackers. Use cracker as base, top with lemon ricotta cheese and sliced strawberries. Easy Peasy!
  • 3/4 pound strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups ricotta (10 ounces), fresh if you can find it, a full-fat store bought if you cannot

    Strawberry-Ricotta Graham Tartlets
  • Adapted — barely, as the recipe was just about perfect — from Food & Wine
  • Make toppings: In a bowl, toss the strawberries with the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar and the lemon juice. Let stand until syrupy, 20 minutes. In a medium bowl, mix the ricotta, confectioners’ sugar and lemon zest.
  • Assemble tartlets: Spread about 1 tablespoon of the ricotta mixture on each graham. Arrange the strawberries over the ricotta, drizzle with the syrup and serve.
  • The strawberries are also delicious over ice cream or yogurt.
