How do you roll out the dough between layers of parchment w/o the parchment sliding all over? I tried placing a wet papertowel underneath...worked great until the water soaked through. Can anyone help a sister out?? icon_lol.gif

Oh I know exactly what you mean! No, I can't figure it out either except only rolling in one direction...... icon_sad.gif

I usually put a few drops of water on the counter to hold the bottom and sadly, the top...well, I roll the parchment large enough so it hangs off the counter so I can just lean against it. This is a great question...I would love to know - there must be a better way.

correction....I use wax paper, not parchment when rolling them out, but I bake them on parchment.

I've used a non skid liner (dollar store) or my silpat.

Cakerer! I thought I was the only one to do the "lean thing"! LOL

I'd like to know if there is a better way as well.

I said this a couple of weeks ago... blasted stuff was all over and I was looking fondly at the duct tape for a second.

Honestly, I use large sheets of parchment, lay my thickness dowells on it and then slide it toward me.
<--That M&M shape over there helps because I must turn the bottom over the slide of the table just enough that I hold it with my... ahem... stomach.. hehe

Don't know why... it just happened that way and works well. (I just told on myself...hehe)

If anybody has a better way please share... icon_lol.gif

Does the non skid liner leave impressions on the dough? Or is it flat? non skid...is that like the shelf liner I use to stop the cakes from sliding in the car?

This one made me chuckle because I do the same as bethola... cutting the bottom parchment longer than needed and enough to hang over the counter so I can lean into it, but I can only roll away from me.

I have also tried the non-skid mat, but I didn't have one long enough for the size I was rolling out and hand the dough uneven.

I prefer the lean-on method myself...LOL icon_redface.gif

You can find flat non skid rolls, I found mine at Target in the cleaning products area It's white.

It was a little more expensive, because it full as oppose to the mesh but it's flat, I have a long piece holding my kitchen table cloth on the table, that darn table is way tooooo slick! Anyhow it works great. I have the mesh stuff on my countertop gripping my cutting boards. That way ther is nother that moves.
I love this stuff. I even used it on the inside of a velcro ribbon I had for my kids sippy cups. Then attached to his high chair with those toy rings, it was great each time the sipply went over, I just grapped the rings and voila! By the time my first was older, he would reach for it himself. Pretty fun game!

Good Luck.

I put my Silpat down first, then the bottom parchment, then my dowels, then my top sheet of parchment. Doesn't move an inch!

Hee-hee! I'm a leaner too!! At least that darn belly of mine is good for something! We'll have to give it a fancy name, like the "Abdominal Grip Technique". LOL icon_lol.gif
