When I was making Chocolate Chip Scones, I could not find my rolling pin any where. I knew that there was a good chance my 4 year old was behind its disappearance, but when I asked him where it was he couldn’t remember where he put it.
I grabbed a clean, tall vase, rubbed oil on it and used it to roll out the dough. Any smooth object with tall sides will work in a pinch, including a glass or stainless steel water bottle.
Several days later I found the rolling pin in a closet on top of a stuffed cat wrapped in a blanket. When I asked my son what he was doing he said, “oh yeah, I was playing The Roly Poly Pudding”.
