  1. What else can be used that is 1/4″ thick instead of dowel rods. I have no way to get to the store and I will be rolling lots of dough that thickness this week. My dough is always too thin or too thick.

  2. Hi . I would love to have a really good Christmas coffee cookie with frosting to try. Do u have such a cookie ?.
    Thanks .
    Email me .

  3. I like this! I’ll have to get to a hardware store asap to see what sizes they have. I suppose a couple of chopsticks might work in a pinch – ?

    This is good info as I am thinking about making my own crackers and flatbreads (and pinning lots of recipes) and this tip should work for crackers just as well. I have celiac disease, and if you’ve ever shopped prices for gluten-free crackers, you’ll see why I want to make my own.

    Thanks so much!
