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 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 pies, cakes, cookies, bread some with recipes…most without. My son “took” to baking. I like to think that his little pin had something to do with that.
