Roll Out Pie Dough the Easy Way

Last week, YumSugar gave me a super simple tip that saved my pumpkin meringue pie from being a disaster. Although I know the basics — to start in the center and move outwards and to rotate the dough a quarter turn after each roll — I was pretty nervous about it. She suggested rolling the dough between two pieces of parchment paper.

  • Rolling out the dough is easier because the parchment paper prevents stickiness.
  • The paper helps make a smooth transfer from counter to pie pan.
  • Rotating the dough after each roll is a cinch because all you have to do is turn the bottom piece of parchment paper.

From now on, I'm always using this trick for rolling out pie crust! Got a secret tip for making a better pie? Please share it with us below!

A pie rolling bag is one of my favorite baking tools for only $6. Keeps the counter clean, makes rolling easy because it's already a sized circle, doesn't stick (with flour), and makes transfering dough to plate super easy with just one flip! Parchment paper is a great idea too, just used it to roll puff pastry for turnovers last night.

Thanks for the parchment paper trick. I always just used flour but after awhile, the dough just gets dry.

My mom - who makes killer pies btw - told me to hold the parchment paper / wax paper with your hip so it doesn't move around too much :)

Gotta use a lot of flour so it won't stick!

Wax paper works too. Also, when you're ready to lift the rolled-out crust into the pie plate, take the rolling pin and roll the crust up into it from one end. Then unroll right into the pie plate.
