Valentine’s Day ‘16 has come and gone. My wife Megan likes to make pies (lucky me). She’s said for awhile now that see wanted a french style rolling pin. Her baking buddy Lonée has one and they are evidently the cat’s meow for spreading pie crusts out nice and thin. Meg says since they are fatter in the middle the dough gets pushed out to the edges. Anyhoo, I didn’t really have a plan, I went to Sir la Table and held one they had in my hands to get a feel for it then went to the shop and turned one out.
She’s was happy as it gets when I gave it to her, and that makes me happy…and filled with pie….happy and filled with pie.
If I had it to do over again I’d take the time to carefully draw and cut out a reference board; keeping the taper symmetrical was trickier than I anticipated. It came out decently but it IS slightly torpedo shaped. I eventually decided to just stop cutting for fear I’d end up with a very lovely tooth-pick.
