TAPERED ROLLING PIN
Tapered rolling pin consists of one solid piece of (usually) wood, tapering down evenly from the middle toward the ends.
It can be easily rotated during the rolling process, making it very handy in rolling out
circle shapes, like pizza and pie bottoms or flour tortillas.
It is also an essential tool in rolling out the paper-thin crusts for the traditional Karelian rice pasties and other Finnish pastries.
