I’ve rolled out pie crusts with a number of pins…and other things.
Big wooden pins
Small wooden pins
Pins with handles
Pins without handles
A chilled bottle of Pinot Gris (works just great!)
But, my favorite is this sturdy little one. Just 5-1/2 inches in length, the bright red handles, proportionally sized, add a total of 6 more inches.
It is the most treasured item from my kitchen.
Having the right tool and a tool of the right size is important. So when my son, Duncan, was four years old, I gave him this pin in hopes that he would find baking as fun as I do. We spent alot of happy hours baking together in our kitchen.
At 22, he continues to bake
some with recipes…most without.
Duncan “took” to baking.
I like to think that this little pin had something to do with that.
