When you make rolled and cut cookies do you use a floured board or a pastry cloth?  I used a floured board and a rolling pin with a "stocking" on it.  Cookies did fine with no sticking and no "crippled " cookies.  Once the dough warmed enough so I was able to roll it, it only took me about an hour to finish them.  They came out good so i will probably make them for my cookie swap

I've never had much luck using a pastry cloth, so I prefer flour on my board and just flour my rolling pin without the stocking.

I use a floured board but instead of flour I roll my cookies in powdered sugar. Gives them a little sweeter taste.

I think a floured board is much easier and simpler.

A floured board sounds like an easier way to gol.

My sister said she got so frustrated with rolling cookie dough that she gave all her cookie cutters to her daughter.  I was curious about the pastry cloth, as I always use it for pie crust.  I thought it might not work well for cookies, but thought I'd see what others did. Thanks

Judy - I have no luck with a rolling pin no matter what I use or what I do. ~sigh~  So I just ignore it and all the cookies I make are "drop".

I clean then flour my kitchen counter and roll out the dough with a wooden rolling pin.  I had trouble using boards, they always seemed to move on me so I just started using the counter.

I use a rolling pin and I use a mixture of flour and powdered sugar.  The powdered sugar seemed to soften the dough a little but the mixture works well.

I always use just flour, and only have a problem when I allow the dough to get too "warm".  I roll out just a baking pan amount, and return the dough to the fridge right away, keeping it cold for the next pan full.  Seems to work for me.  Hope this helps some others.

My mom always used a four sack pastry cloth and floured her wooden rolling pin.  Her sugar cookies were the best.
Unfortunately I never inherited the technique.  My cookies are not as good.
 My son makes them just right.  He declared the secret was her antique rolling pin and took it for his own kitchen and bought me a new one!
I'm not sure about that but his cookies turn out better than mine!

Ha Ha Ha...rolled! Cut out! I do drop cookies much easier.  This is from a woman that makes Bar cookies or Bundt Cakes just because they are easier.

Ok, I will fess up, I have done a Star Tree with my Grandson and I have done Spritz cookies with him.  I would do a Spritz over a rolled or cut out cookie though.

Don't get me started on decorating the cookies!! A Chocolate chip placed delicately in the center of a Chocolate Chip Cookie would be classified as decorated in my book.

My idea of cookie decorating is to add extra chips after the dough is on the cookie sheet ready to go into the oven.   Those big, clean, uncovered, dark, gorgeous, sexy, fine  --- oops, I'm getting carried away here -- sorry --- chips sure look nice.

Nikki P, I sometimes have a problem with the spritz cookies not wanting to separate from the "spritzer".  I haven't made those in years.
