Dough Tip - Clean Up

When it's time to shape or roll out dough, best way to manage this is to shape the dough right on the same piece of parchment that you're gonna bake on, but sometimes I turn it right out onto the counter top and the clean-up used to be a mess. Then I figured out that I could drag my kitchen wastebasket right to the edge of the counter and use my bench scraper to scrape the loose flour and sticky pieces of leftover dough straight into the trash can. Depending on your counter top surface you may need to be a bit more gentle so not to scratch it, or maybe find some other softer straight-edge surface. Mine is cheap-o laminate and this works great on getting all that flour and dough up, and no more goopy sponges or scrubbing required either! Less work? I'm all for that!

  1. A number of years ago, my sister suggested that we have a "theme" for Christmas Eve dinner with our families rather than make the same things over and over. I admit I was a bit skeptical at first as it seemed to break with tradition (we are originally from New Jersey but have all moved to Arizona), but it has wound up being quite fun, and all the foods we have had have been quite delicious! This year's theme is "Southern," and we are going to use many of the suggestions and recipes posted on your site. (Which, by the way is incredibly thorough!)
