and I just could not do it (they always stuck like crazy) BUT I remembered watching my husband's sister-in-law roll out on a floured board. So, I tried the flour/board and have never tried the wax paper again.
I think I have my crust technique down pat. I use much, much more water than almost any recipe says and my crusts come out flaky, just the way I like them.
I guess 30+ years of practice helped. . . finally learned to stop handling the dough so D*** much! If only someone would have whacked my knuckles (tently!) while ove- handling dough sooner!
