How to Roll out Sugar Cookie Dough-Video
When I first started making cookies I didn’t know much about cookie dough, royal icing, or how to roll out cookie dough. I seemed to use about a pound of flour to sprinkle the mat and counters so the dough wouldn’t stick when I cut out the shapes. Then, I would spend the rest of the evening trying to clean up the mess. The really sad part was, I couldn’t understand why my cookies were dry and crumbly. It never occurred to me that it could be all the extra flour I added to the dough while rolling it out.
In case you’re new to cookie decorating or just make cookies at Christmas, I wanted to save you some trouble and make a video on how to roll out sugar cookie dough. It is simple and you don’t need to use much flour and you can roll them out without using any flour at all. The cleanup process is much easier.

This method only works with dough that has been frozen for a few minutes. My sugar cookies recipes require I chill the dough for about an hour before cutting out the cookies. If you freeze it for 15-30 minutes, you can start baking faster.
