Finally picked up a set of rolling pin guides. I've been wanting to try them for years.
They came as 4 sets of 4 sizes. I don't use them for everything, but it nice to have perfectly even dough sometimes. Looks better. Bakes better.
These are the sizes according to color.
My rolling pin is a little thicker than many of them. Which made the green and blue just a touch hard to get on there.
But once they were on there, it worked like a charm.
We went with the biggest one for the Christmas sugar cookies we made back in December. We like 'em big ! No dainty princess bites with our cookies.
Then I found myself a cute little helper. With lots of attitude, but cute.
Rollin' like a boss. It did work great. We encountered no problems with them.
It's just that you couldn't go any wider than the guides, or you'd go through your dough with it. I usually make a much larger piece of dough, larger than the pin, and roll the hole thing out. Seems to go quicker than using small amounts. I would say that's the only drawback I had.
I believe you can get them most anywhere, but I happen to pick these up at Walmart for a few bucks.
This was the final outcome from the days work.
We will forever be bakers with even dough from now on.
Do you use rolling pin guides?
What all do you use them for?
What is your favorite thing to bake?
