This is a strange question, but have any of you used a pasta sheet roller to roll out cookie dough sheets? I'm looking for an easier/quicker way to roll out sugar cookie dough.

Thanks.

I've never tried this before. I use good old 'elbow grease' and get mine rolled out and cut. If you have one, why not try it. Let us know what you find out.

i think you would have to roll the dough so thin first that it wouldn't be worth dirtying the pasta machine to bother to try it.

I would think it would really gum up the pasta roller.

I think that, if it worked, the cookie dough would be really thin

I'm with mmumsie on this one, I use good old fashioned elbow grease Works like a charm - every time

Even if it DID work, I don't like the idea of a dough with raw eggs touching nooks and crannys of a pasta roller if you do Clean it WELL!.

Yes, I'm with the others....too thin right. Does the roller have different levels of thickness? If not, I just think it would be way thin.

You already use raw egg when rolling your pasta dough in the roller, why would it matter if it was cookie dough? Anyway....I did try this in my pasta roller, it crumbled. It could have been my cookie dough recipe. I haven't tried it since. I'd like to try pie dough for making homemade poptarts! Has anyone tried this?????

I've not used my pasta roller for anything but fondant or gumpaste. I just use my rolling pin for pie dough. Pie dough should not be over handled or you lose the tender crust you like in a pie dough, so I wouldn't do it anyway. Poptarts? I suppose the crust doesn't have to be as tender and flaky as a regular pie. To me it would be just as easy and maybe faster to roll by hand.

Do NOT use it on the KA pasta roller! You can't submerge the KA unit in water to clean it as the sugar will make the roller sticky.
