Use An Empty Wine Bottle As A Rolling Pin

Use An Empty Wine Bottle As A Rolling Pin

If you’re like me and rarely take the time to bake anything, a rolling pin is probably not something you have in your kitchen. In the event the baking bug bites, you can use an empty glass bottle in a pinch to roll out your dough.

Blogger Brooke Lauren blogged about the idea while coming up with various uses for leftover wine bottles. They can be used for lots of things, including as an automatic plant waterer or to help maintain boot shape.

For this particular application they’re perfect, because the bottles are long, flat, and the dough shouldn’t stick to the surface any more than a real rolling pin. It’s possible to use a full wine bottle as well, but it’s probably a little more difficult to handle, and it will get covered in flour. So summon the remaining spirits right out of your bottle and bake something.
