Better Home Cooking Basics: #37 Use Plastic Wrap for a Stick-Free Way to Roll out Pie Crust

I learned this trick for a stick-free way to roll out pie crust from my mom.  Start by tearing off two big pieces of plastic wrap. Lay one down on the cutting board or flat surface that you'll be working on. Place your ball of dough on the center of the plastic. Lay another piece of the plastic wrap on top. If you plastic isn't large enough use more pieces & overlap them. Then using a rolling pin, roll the dough out between the plastic wrap. You won't need to worry about extra flour making your dough too tough or your dough sticking to your rolling pin.  Plus, it makes it easier to get the dough off the cutting board & into your pie pan. Win. Win.
