Lookee My New Toy :-)

Last week I got a new toy for my cookie baking obsession......a DoBoard. You use it to roll out nice, even dough. Wow....it's amazing! I took some pics this afternoon so you could see it in "action".





This pic shows how the long dowel smooths the dough to the height you set the board at. Cool?


I love how they are all the same thickness. :-)


Hopefully I'll be back this weekend with all these flowers decked out. :-)))))

Congratulations, Pam! I've heard many people praise the DoBoard... is it really good? I roll my dough with bands on my rolling pin...

CookieCrazieLady said...

Bea....I never tried the bands. Since I like my cookies thick, I wasn't sure the bands would make them thick enough. The DoBoard is awesome! But if you are happy with the bands, no need to change.

OOOO! I want a DoBoard! Where do you find one?
ps...I don't know your recipe...but a bit of almond extract in the dough and frosting tastes AMAZING!!!
Beautiful work by the way...mine always taste good but they are NEVER as pretty as yours! If I was your daughter I would hide them so I wouldn't have to share...terrible aren't I?

I just got mine last weekend! I love it! I have a tray of cookies in the oven right now!
What thickness do you use? I used 3/8" for some cookies on a stick, then ended up not inserting the stick, but adding it with choc later. I am doing 1/4" tonight, and I think that is great for regular eating cookies.
This cookie baking is addicting!

M. Samuels......I have a link on the right side border of my blog for Armchair World. That was the best price I've seen for a DoBoard.....but beware..... it's still expensive.

Linda....that's great about the DoBoard and your cookies! I used the thickest setting with the baskets, grass scenes, etc. But this latest version (Flower Crazy) I used the next smaller setting. Sorry....I don't know what thickness each is.

Happy Baking!!!

Kris said...

Way cool! Where did you get that?

CookieCrazieLady said...

Kris,

The link to the online store where I purchased the DoBoard is on the right side bar of the blog. :-)

I looked at your work on your blog.....gorgeous stuff, Kris!!!! Keep up the great work. :-)

Your cookies are beautiful!

I just ordered a Dough Board (I think they should probably give you a commission!). It says the dough heights are 1/8", 1/4", 3/8" or 1/2". So if you used the 3/8" one for your cookies, do you remember how long you bake a sheet?

CookieCrazieLady said...

Cindy,

I don't bake my cookies by time as much as by what they look and feel like. I know that I bake them at 325 for at least 18 minutes....but I add on time after that according to touch. If the dough sinks in, I add 2 or 3 minutes until the dough is fairly firm.

I'm just starting to learn how to do cookies and I'm so glad I found your blog! You are very talented.

Just wanted to say thanks for posting this: I love this board!

I have been baking using a tip I found in a book: You put unchilled dough between two sheets of parchment, roll it out, then chill on a cookie sheet until it's hard. There is no mess and no flour, and it's the first time I've ever been able to roll my dough out evenly.

CookieCrazieLady said...

Thanks Michelle.

Yes.....I got this same tip a few weeks ago. It works great!

Enjoy your DoBoard. :-))))

I think this is going on my Christmas wish list!

Traci said...

I just bought the Do'Board, and threw the instructions away :-( Do you use flour on your board?

Cookiecrazielady said...

Congratulations on the DoBoard. :) You can definitely use flour on it. I only use it if my dough is sticky.

Paty_rolon said...

where did you get this?

Pam said...

Paty......I linked the site I bought the DoBord on my most recent post.

Islander said...

I had checked into the DoBoard site as I wanted to also purchase the same board, however, they have stopped producing such item. Any other suggestions??? Thanks a lot. Islander from Istanbul
