Anyone know where one might find one of those zippered plastic pie crust bags in Boston? No luck at Kitchen Arts.

      No - I forgot about them. I will check and see. I think a "real" pastry chef that would shop there doesn't have need of such remedial devices.

          Have you tried just rolling the crust between two sheets of waxed paper? Obviously this doesn't help with the "round" factor, but it does make the crust easy to handle, and you don't need to use extra dusting flour which can toughen the crust (so I'm told).

            There's a kitchen supply place (like Lechter's used to be) at the Wrentham outlets that has them.

              I'll have to check the Wrentham place out, but I gave up on Boston - they aren't carried at Eastern Baker's, Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table. In the end I broke down and ordered it for $1.99 here (actually I ordered two, seeing as the postage was 3 bucks anyway):

              I've tried lightly floured waxed paper and plastic wrap, and both work fine, but I read in Cook's Illustrated that this gizmo actually works even better.

              Thanks for all the suggestions!

                It's not quite as cool as those, but I've had good luck with a big ziploc freezer bags -- the 2 gallon size works pretty well.
