Flour Sack Towels...

WOW! While I love my homespun and terry cloth towels my most favorite kitchen towel is the ol' flour sack towel. And while doing some holiday baking, I found more reasons why this towel will always have a place in my kitchen.
For some time now I've been making my own pie crust. Needing to make a couple of pies for a friend I was thinking back and remembering the difficulty I had rolling and transferring the crust the last time I made pies. Ugh! I thought there had to be something to make it easier and I don't know why it took me so long to think of this.....
I have a couple of flour sack towels that I use specifically for cover dough while rising, cover foods just out of oven, etc...So...I thought "Hmmm.....I wonder....." now need I say more?
That had to be the easiest of crusts to roll and transfer....yes I still used flour on the cloth and rolling pin ( which the rolling pin my son got me a couple Christmases ago is another of my favorite things)
So a couple days after the pies I needed to make sugar cookies and cinnamon rolls....yes the ol' flour sack towel came through again.... Oh the simple things in life that make our day to day tasks easier!
