Makeshift Rolling Pins
What's that you say? You want to make a pie, but you don't have a rolling pin? If you bake pies as often as I do you're going to run into this problem eventually. The solution? A glass bottle like a wine or beer bottle. You're bound to come across one of these items in most kitchens. So if you ever find yourself rolling pinless, finish your brew, clean off the bottle, and roll as you would any pin.
Example: I went to Cabo with some friends last year. We decided to make a dinner for ourselves, and no way I wasn't going to bake a pie for dessert. Hmmmmm...well we did buy a bunch of large Coronas...they're round. As always you need to be gentle with the crust, but especially when using a bottle, since you don't have a tight grip nor can you cover the same area per roll.
This is from the first pie I was ever shown how to bake. We bought some already prepared dough, but needed to roll it out a bit. We were already drinking wine so we just finished off the bottle and used it to roll the parts we needed to.
Here's another example where the only bottle we had was a regular beer bottle. Sure the bottle was small, making the process harder, but when the agenda is pie you can't let anything stand in your way. This photo's from one of the first pies I ever tried to make. A lemon one I think. Those are my friend Cheryl's hands rolling out the dough. At the time we were studying abroad in Spain and we didn't exactly have access to rolling pins, but you got to do what you got to do.
P.S. Estrella Damm is delicious.
