Can anyone recommend a rolling pin that allows you to adjust the width of your cookies for rolling sugar cookies?  I found only one on  Amazon but it has a lot of mixed reviews.  Just wondering what options are out there or where I should be looking?

Did you mean to say you want one that you can adjust for depth?  I Just bought and used both the large and small Wilton rolling pins and used them a couple of days ago for rolling fondant to three various thicknesses.  They both worked great, didn't stick at all either.  Price was right too and I  got them at

Walmart.

I know a lot of people here don't like Wilton products but I have always been pleased with most of them.

I like that rolling pin too... and just a coupon at Hobby Lobby, Michaels or Joann's.

I use a regular ol' large wooden one, and if I really want my cookies the same thickness, I use wooden dowels. I put the rolling pin on the dowels and roll away.

^^^ using the free paint stir sticks from Home Depot, especially the long ones for the 5 gallon buckets works great for the "side rails" too.

That's what I use.

I roll out the dough directly on my Wilton 14x20 cookie sheet with the raised rim at the back and put the sticks on either side to get the correct thickness.  Then I use my cookie cutters and pull away the left-over dough.

Oh, duh, the original question..... (no edit button!)

I use whatever rolling pin I can find.  An old wooden one, a large Wilton fondant one, basically whatever I can find first gets used.  No difference.   (I've even used a Ragu jar in a pinch....)

Can you use the fondant one for sugar cookies?  I have a fondant one and it is really tiny- the sugar cookies would be way too thin.  I'm sure they make other sizes but just curious?  TIA

Just adding that the two Wilton ones I just got have the three sizes of rings that you can use on the pin to get a consistent depth. The rings go on both ends and are different thicknesses.  The pins work well on fondant and cookie dough.  Piecrust too.
