After a few minutes, dough should clean the counter top and not be sticky. Place dough in a bowl, cover, and keep in refrigerator to cool. When ready to use, roll 1/2 dough on a floured board to 1/8 inch thick. Place dough in a pan. Use as directed in recipes. VARIATION Add sugar to flour before mixing with other ingredients.
