It's impossible to roll it thin enough! Tastes pretty good, not as good as the ones I buy at Froelichs but heck it's my first time! Any suggestions about how to roll it thinner???? My rolling pin is old and wooden...I've heard of newer, smaller ones.

I tried to dry the Rosemary from my garden in the microwave and set the paper towel afire. :rolleyes: Ended up using the dried in a jar. I need to go pick some and set it in the sun so next time (yes, there will be a next time) I can use fresh.

Curious, you may have created a monster! :D

alffe...are you using a regular rolling pin?

i have a special one...it all tiny squares that stick out. i also make lefse...which is norwegian. it also takes a long tapered stick to get that thin dough off your board without tearing.

hehehe..i should have mentioned this huh? oh..don't worry too much about the amount of flour you use on the board. this stuff is dry. :wink:

Just ordered me a Corrugated Rolling Pin! :D I won't try to make this again until it arrives.....Thank you Curious. Someone mentioned a hollow rolling pin that you fill with ice! :confused: Why would that be a good thing? :winky:

Pastry 101. :D

For best results, keep everything cold. Use cold hands, a cold marble top, pastry board or worktop and water. (To keep my hands cold, I fill a resealable plastic bag with ice and then hold it in my palms for a few seconds, when I need to or run them under cold water and then dry.) Handle the pastry as little as possible and always use the finger-tips, the coolest part of the hands. The dough os placed in a refrigerator between rollings so that the pastry remains firm.

Brrrrrrrrrrr! :D

Oh Curious, will you adopt me? I haven't had REALLY good lefse since my norwegian grandma used to make it long ago! Dang it was good!!!! Little bit of sugar, little bit of butter, roll it up, eat, and go AHHHHHH!

HAAA!!! Look at the rolling pin used for lefse here! http://www.lefsetime.com/all_about_lefse/making_lefse_instructions.php

i sure will doody!!! i make lefse atleast once a year. did your grandma make potato balls? ( some call them kuemla (sp) )

i had to laugh at that web site doody. looks just like me when i make lefse..except i use a potato ricer first. makes for faster work. iwill say...i end up with a tad bit more flour on me and the counters than that lady in the picture.

Doody, when you come we're going up to Frolichs for flatbread that is to die for!

Ok...so when the rolling pin arrives and I try making it again I'll need a new kitchen with marble tops? Mr.Alffe ain't gonna like that! :p

And I need to keep the dough cold!

a round marble slab is good for cooking homemade pizza.

I have granite but I don't think I should put granite in the oven hey?

I think Moi may have meant "sit on it".

Hey, I'm looking outside and there's no sun yet. lol

p.s. :Wave-Hello: from one side of the Pacific to the other. :D

I have a feeling I may not have an elephant cookie cutter, Lara .... but I do have 2 large containers full of all shapes of cutters! I even have a moose and a newt!

:rolleyes:

Lara

Moose/Barb was here a minute or two ago. She'd probably have one of those too. ;) A newt? Now that is a very unusual cookie cutter indeed.

p.s. actually the newt would be great for Halloween parties or Harry Potter sleepovers.

Alffe
07-24-2007, 04:27 PM
Ok...show me the newt! :D For the life of me I can't think what a newt looks like!

Curious
07-24-2007, 04:33 PM
