Simple Tip: Roll Out Dough on Parchment Paper

Anytime I bake a recipe that requires the rolling of dough (pizza, pie, cracker, etc.), I get a little scared. What can I say? Dough is intimidating. That's why, whenever I can make it easier on myself, I do! Many recipes will have you place the rolled, ready-to-be-baked dough on parchment paper. When this happens, I recommend rolling the dough out directly on the parchment paper. None of the dough gets stuck to the kitchen counter. To move the rolled dough to the pan, you simply lift the entire thing, parchment paper included.

Do you have a trick for dealing with dough? Please share it with us below!

I've always wanted a silpat.

I usually use two pieces of parchment and put the dough between them. But I've also heard of rolling the dough between two Silpats as well. I bet that would work pretty well also.

depending on what I make, I also use the parchment paper but if I'm making cookies I just put lots of flower down on my counter. I usually make too much of a mess when making cookies to worry about dough sticking to my counter ha-ha
