Hi! This is my first ever question to any group, so forgive me if I may be incorrect in asking. I'm just getting into this hobby as a distraction from work.

I'm in sunny, very sunny, Phoenix, AZ. Yesterday, November 3rd, it was 90 degrees. Holidays don't wait for the weather. Is it possible to use a chilled marble tray with a chilled marble rolling pin to get going on my baking. It doesn't take long for the dough to get too soft. 

Your answer is appreciated. 

Have a sweet week.

Hi, again. Sure it's definitely possible to do that, but don't you work in a temperature-controlled environment? Here, in Missouri, when it hits 90 degrees, the air-conditioner goes on, and that's all I need to keep the room cool enough to roll dough without difficulty.

Hi @Sweet distractions, in the summer I put the cookie dough in the fridge before rolling out. Then I roll him out on a baking sheet and put him back in the fridge. If the dough is really firm, I prick it out and then just need to remove the dough edges and the sheet can immediately go into the preheated oven. So does not melt the dough and can bake the same.

Hello from sunny Phoenix, AZ... I typically roll out my dough on parchment, place the dough sheets in the freezer for 15 minutes-ish,  then cut my cookies and return the cut cookies back to the freezer until baking and re-roll the scrap dough to start the process again until all the dough has been used.  Just don't let your sheets become so frozen you can't get your cutter to cut the dough
