Thanks Cake Princess! I used your tips and I actually made perfect cookies for the first time in my life. Its really hot and humid here and my cookies would stick to the counter. I did put them in the fridge but sometimes the cookies were breaking when I removed them from the wax paper. In the end I baked them with the wax paper.

Thanks again!

I think I'm going to bump this just to share my DON'T EVER DO THIS tip...

It might be only me, but I:

1. Rolled first 1/3 of dough out between two wax paper sheets
2. Place that in fridge WITHOUT top sheet
3. Rolled second 1/3 of dough out (same way) and placed ON TOP OF first rolled batch - still no top sheet.
4. Repeated with last 1/3 and then topped with wax paper and let sit overnight.

So, I had three layers of cookie dough (with ONE sheet of wax paper in between) STUCK like glue to eachother, and had to let them "thaw" before I pulled them apart and started over.


My DD called me a "big dummy" and fell off the couch laughing at me... she'll get hers! icon_mad.gif


*Cake Princess, you are a life saver... I save the url for your tips in my favorites. Re: your other tips...I used to cut my own templates when working with FILO clay, but never ever thought to do it with cookies! I use MMF for my "icing" so the template would work for that too! Thanks a bunch!!*

LOL... yes use a top sheet that way you can pull one rolled out batch at a time without the rest thawing out.

Also, bumping this thread up to the top for those that need it.

What do you put under the bottom sheet of wax paper so it doesn't move?

Tape it to the top of the counter if it moves. Then untape it and reuse the tape to roll out the other batches of Cookies.

I find if I use a spacer like a CD jewel case as An example the paper wont move.

If all else fails tape works.

When you use "spacers" - like dowels or sticks - do you tape them down while rolling out your dough? I would think they would roll around easily and you'd have to keep adjusting them to stay underneath the rolling pin. I always just "eye" my dough but of course that is not always adequate. I always get the edges thinner no matter how hard I try to make it even. What are some other ideas for spacers? Dowels sound like they would be most effective - plus the length of them can vary which would be beneficial.

I normally dont tape them down I have done this so often that I don't have to but you can tape them if you wish to. With regards to the length you can use the longer sticks or other objects. Just find something that works for you.

Flat paint stir sticks work well for spacers too and they are free! I have these and love them, but use to use the paint sticks.

Thank you so much for your tips.

I have one question. After you take the dough out of the freezer and use your cutters, don't you have remaining dough? What do you do with that?
I am assume that you roll it again and stick it back in the freezer?

Thanks.

Yes just re-roll it and re-freeze it.
