ROLLING OUT DOUGH
1. Place a large piece of plastic wrap
on the counter and sprinkle it with a
tablespoon or so of sweet rice flour.
2. Place one disk of dough on plastic
wrap. Sprinkle more flour on top of
the dough and cover with a second
large piece of plastic wrap.
3. Roll out the dough quickly. As you
roll, lift the plastic wrap from the
dough occasionally and place it back
down loosely. Flip the dough over and
continue rolling, occasionally lifting
the plastic wrap from this second
4. When the dough is about 1 inch
larger than your pie pan, carefully
and slowly remove the upper piece
of plastic wrap.
