Cookie Floss

One reader asked how she could slice refrigerator cookies and keep their nice round shape. The answer is dental floss! Slide a piece (about 1 foot long) under the roll of dough, crisscross the ends above the dough and pull until you've cut through the dough. This also works well with yeast cinnamon rolls that are rolled and sliced. I've used floss to cut jelly rolls and cakes into layers, too. —G.W., Fairport, New York
