Cathy is Brilliant!

Every once in a while you come across something and wonder: 1) Why haven’t I heard about this before? Or more maddeningly: 2) Since I wasn’t lucky enough to hear about it, why wasn’t I smart enough to have figured this out on my own?!

This is *exactly* how I felt when doing a bit of catching up at Cathy’s blog: My Little Kitchen. I love following her “Mondays with Maida”–and reading the panel’s take on that week’s cookie. The moment of true “hit-yourself-on-the-forehead” discovery came reading Monday, August 28th’s post on Pinwheel Cookies.

She shared her tip for rolling cookie dough out to the correct size and shape: use masking tape to mark off the dimensions on your countertop! When you roll your cookie dough between sheets of wax paper, you can easily see the tape and adjust accordingly. How brilliant is that?!!!!

Ok, ok, I know it’s not the answer to world peace or dwindling oil reserves…but in the world of baking—this is one great discovery! Well, for me at least. *smile* And for all those other bakers who’ve cursed at trying to wield their Stanley Tape Measure with buttery, floury hands!

So thank you, thank you, thank you Cathy! I will think of you each and every time I “Tape then Roll” from here on out. You *truly* are Brilliant!
