The 1 Hack That Makes Rolling Out Your Cookie Dough Even Easier
Cookbook extraordinaire Dorie Greenspan just saved Christmas with the ultimate cookie-rolling hack. Rather than rolling your cookie dough out with a pin after letting it chill in the fridge, as most recipes suggest, she recommends rolling your dough before chilling, doing so between two sheets of parchment paper instead of on a flour-covered surface. This totally eliminates the all-too-familiar issue of having your dough stick to either the rolling pin or kitchen countertop. Plus, it gives your arms a break from having to roll out cold, hard dough. Pure genius! Once you've flattened the dough out to your preferred thickness, pop it — parchment paper included! — in the fridge for about an hour. After the dough has sufficiently chilled, let the cutting begin!
This helpful trick originally hailed from Greenspan when Food52 shared the details on how to roll out cookie dough easier. We're beyond glad we came across her life-changing tip and can't wait to test it out ourselves. In the meantime, you can find us stocking up on parchment paper and sprinkles to quench our holiday baking obsession.
