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!
