Forget all that flour — this is how you should be rolling out cookie dough

If you're not rolling out your cookie dough like this, you're probably ending up with a very messy kitchen. But don't worry, there is an easier way.


I don't know how I manage to do it, but without fail, rolling out a batch of cookie dough guarantees that the counters, the floor, the dog and both my front and backside will be covered in flour. It's a gift.

But now my excessive flour problem has been solved. Apparently you don't even need it. Take that, flour... there's a new kid in town, and his name is plastic wrap. (I won't get into the fact that every time I use plastic wrap, it's a wrestling match that usually ends in me crumpling up several pieces in frustration and throwing the box across the room. Still easier than cleaning up all that flour.)

See for yourself how easy this method is. It might make you want to bake, which means more cookies, which is always a good thing.
