OK, it’s likely that I didn’t want to waste all that parchment paper. That is if I actually had thought of this. And somehow I think I’ve heard of this before, but my brain failed to retain it. It’s such a lightbulb, Duh!, idea.

Don’t roll your cookie dough out on a floured surface, roll it out on parchment paper or wax paper. Don’t wait to chill it. Use a top sheet of parchment or wax paper as well, so to make zero mess. Use Dowels if you want to get an exact thickness.

Once you have your cookie dough ball rolled out between the two pieces of paper slide it onto the back of a rimmed baking sheet. Stack up as many rolled out pieces that you need. Then pop it all in to the refrigerator to chill. Now you won’t have any mess while rolling out dealing with flour. You won’t get excess flour into your cookie dough either. Plus, you’ll have much more of an assembly line when you come to pull out sheet by sheet of rolled out dough to cut out.

Christmas cookies are right around the corner!
