Have you ever longed to have perfectly uniform 1/4 inch thick dough? Or some other thickness? Thanks to the Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin, I now have *exactly* 1/4 inch thick sugar cookie dough, and I couldn't be more pleased!
My newly-uniform dough comes courtesy of this rolling pin I found at a T.J. Maxx at the beach last year. I'd been casually looking for a new rolling pin, but it had not occurred to me there might be one that could automatically ensure the right height of dough!
This one comes with three sets of disks, which helpfully attach right on the rolling pin, and you can select dough heights of 1/16 inch, 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch.
Sugar cookie dough, of course, needs to be 1/4 inch thick. I simply attached the discs for the 1/4 inch height of dough on each end, locked them in place, and my dough rolled out in no time flat. (Flat. No time flat. Get it? Oh, never mind.) With the discs set at 1/4 inch, I knew that once my dough was smoothly rolled out under the rolling pin, I had perfect 1/4 inch thick dough. I was amazed how quickly I was able to cut out cookies with this simple time-saving rolling pin!
Thanks to this new gadget, I ended up with some of the most perfectly cut sugar cookie dough ever—and it didn't cost a lot of dough, either. My rolling pin was $9.99 at T.J. Maxx, but I see on the Joseph Joseph web site that the rolling pin has now been redesigned with an extra set of discs, and all are color coded according to size. Since I just wanted perfect 1/4 inch dough I'm quite content with my rolling pin as-is, and if you should need a new one, I enthusiastically endorse the Joseph Joseph brand!
