Pastry basics: the wooden dough scraper
Time to get your pie-making supplies together. Pie tins? Check. Leaf lard? Check. Pastry flour? Check.
And maybe one of these hand-carved wooden dough scrapers. Always a sucker for a beautiful tool, I’m ready to replace my plastic dough scraper with a wood version, the more grain the better. One or more would make a lovely gift for your favorite baker.
Wooden dough scraper (no two alike), $9 each from Canvas, a New York shop with an online presence.
