Dough cutters come in shapes and sized as varied as the category of pastries itself. There are dough cutters that come in the form of shapes and some that roll down a sheet of dough, creating uniform cuts for pastries such as croissants or lattice for pies. Form cutters are best used for biscuits or other pastries that will not require manipulation once the dough is cut.
Cutting dough may seem like a simple task and it is for the most part, but there are a few things you can do to make the process even better. Always remember to lightly dust your cutter before you begin cutting the dough. Try to keep steady, even pressure on the cutter as you press down or roll out. Inconsistent pressure leads to inconsistent edges. If you are using a lattice roller, make sure that the dough is cool and dry or else problems could arise.
