Kitchen Tip of the Week

I thought with the Holidays quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to share one of my very favorite kitchen tips!
I always hated making sugar cookies because of the mess it made when I rolled them out on the counter. Flour everywhere, and then my cookies would get too much of it and be a bit on the dry side.
Then came the perfect solution - good ol parchment paper and wax paper! (Sorry I don't have any pics to post for a tutorial, but I think it's easy enough to get the gist of without them.)
1.After your dough has been refrigerated and is ready to be rolled out, lay out a sheet of parchment paper the same size as your cookie sheet.
2. Lay the dough down on top of the parchment paper.
3. Lay a piece of wax paper over the top.
4. Now use your rolling pin OVER the wax paper to roll out the dough.
5. Cut out your shapes, and then simply slide the parchment sheet right on to your cookie sheet!
6. Have another sheet of parchment ready to go to roll out the remaining dough and cut out more shapes. 7. When your cookies are done baking, just slide the whole parchment right on to your cooling rack - no chance of breakage from having to move them one by one with a spatula!! And it makes clean-up a snap!

Do you have a favorite tip to share? Please do!
