Dobord Alternative...Achieving even cookie thickness

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 

I finally ordered my Dobord! After waiting a week and still no payment/shipping processing, I called and was informed Dobords are no longer being produced. icon_sad.gif Bummer! Although she did say there would be a similar item being made, it wont be available for a few months. I have been using rings around my rolling pin but i haven't been able to find a large enough rolling pin that can cover a wide amount of dough and fit the rings I have. I've tried wooden slats but they move around too much. I'm thinking the dowels would do the same.

 

Any other tips or suggestions?

 

Thanks everyone!

SQUARE dowels people.

 

Sorry to laugh, but K8's reply made me imagine someone trying to use round dowels for this purpose.

LOL! Sorry, but just like K8, I also pictured round dowels! That's why I was so puzzled at how the heck that would work!! Duh! Square dowels! Thanks for clarifying!!

I love my Dobord! I had heard that they stopped making them months ago when a friend tried to buy one and found out that she couldn't. The only thing that would make the Dobord better is if they made it the size of a half sheet pan.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Between the pastry cloth and the dowels (which I learned about from here) I have been having great results from sugar cookies to doggie biscuits... I love the way they work. Maybe add the pastry cloth??

Kathy107,

I haven't ordered from them, so I can't help you with how they operate. That was just the only one I found for sale.

Good luck,

shanter

K8,

My Foley pastry cloth has been used mostly for pie dough, but I have also rolled out cookies on it. It doesn't really get icky, and if it does, it can be washed. The only thing about washing it is that it shrank a bit so I had to iron the heck out of it to get it completely flat again (the seam thread shrank a teensy bit more than the canvas). Parchment is a great idea! I just do things the way my mom taught me (lo these many decades ago) and she didn't use parchment. I'm not even sure it was available back in the olden days of my youth.
