An easier way to roll pastry

Pearlman Group


Rolling out dough, one of the most important steps in making pastry, is a hundred times easier with Joseph Joseph’s roll-up pastry mat ($18). The silicone mat lies flat on the counter without curling and will not slip. Markings along the
bottom are handy for rolling rectangles while the circles on top, numbered from 5 to 12 inches, are helpful for making pie crusts and scones. The pastry lifts off easily so you can transfer it to a pie pan or baking sheet. When you’re finished, wipe off the mat, roll it up. and fasten it with the
attached strap and button. You’ll wonder what you did without it.
