Ralph's tips and tricks
  • The dough should be about 1/16" thick. I use two pieces of plastic, one on each side of the dough, to keep the thickness the same between batches. Find something around the house you can use like a couple of old rulers.
  • I use a 5 inch diameter Matzoh Farfle can to cut the dough for the Texas size muffin pans.
