Rolling Dough with Perfection Strips on Silicone Mat
Cut out Shapes
A professional-looking cookie must start with a beautiful undecorated cookie. Follow these steps for perfectly baked cookies every time. Use tools like perfection strips or a rolling pin with rings for even thickness. Roll the dough directly on parchment paper or a silicone mat to eliminate the need of picking up the cutout cookie and tranfering which may distort the shape.

Chill dough if the recipe calls for chilling. This is very important. Your dough will be very sticky and uncooperative if it is not chilled properly. Place dough on parchment paper or a silicone mat. Roll dough between perfection strips (Strips of plastic that come in various thickness) or roll with a rolling pin that has rings attached. Both perfection strips or the rolling pin with rings will make the cookies be an even thickness every time. Cut out the shapes, leaving 1/2″ all around each cut-out. Remove excess dough and transfer parchment paper or silicone mat to a cookie sheet.
