Use Dowels for Even Dough Rolling

Rolling dough and pastry to an even, accurate thickness is hard with just a rolling pin. Here's a simple way to create guides to ensure even rolling of your pastry and pie doughs.


Use dowels as guides to roll doughs evenly. Just place your dough on a piece of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Top it with a second piece, and place the dowels on either side of the dough. Roll out the dough while resting the rolling pin on the dowels. The dough will be level and the thickness of the dowels. You can even use chopsticks!
