I used to own a bakery and it didn't work out, but I'm starting to do things on the side again. At the bakery I had a wonderful Somerset sheeter that I used for my no fail sugar cookies. I loved it! It was easy to use, the consistency of the product was great and most importanty, it saved my arms.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be used at home that would do the same thing? I like for my cookies to be about 1/2" thick. I know thicker than normal, but that is what people liked. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

Thank you!!!

Is a pasta roller too small? I've read where some use one to roll fondant.

I thought about that and have been looking at them, but from what I can tell they roll too thin? I need something that is about 1/2" thick. Do you know if there is a pasta roller that rolls that thick?

No, sorry. I've not used mine in a while and I'm not sure how wide it would adjust.

I could swear I posted this already so sorry if this is a duplicate. I found a clay slabber on the Internet. Here is the link. Looks like it may let you make it thicker but I'm not sure.

Pasta machine would be way too thin. Its meant for rolling out thin pasta. The only question about the pottery slab if you can adjust it like a sheeter?
