I tried a cookie dough recipe I got off here the other day (sorry can't remember who by) and, as with every cookie dough I make, everything goes great until I have to roll out the dough for cutting with the cookie cutters - then it just sticks to the benchtop and my rolling pin. I tried to put flour on both items today - same thing happened. It's really irritating me and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone please enlighten me??? I want to be able to make pretty cookies like everyone else on here.

Thanks, K

Try the NFSC on the most saved recipes. Its really good. Make sure you roll it out just like she says...It makes it so easy and they hold their shape so well. You can even alter the flavor if you want. I've made them with vanilla, almond and annise extract (seperately of course) and they all tasted good.

Hope this helps!

Try rolling between two sheets of waxed or parchment paper.

I always roll with wax or parchment paper, that way it's effortless and it keeps my wooden rolling pin from getting messy.

I use a sheet of vinyl, just like I do for fondant and modeling chocolate.
