I used to grease my cookie sheets. I tried non-stick baking sheets.
Then I discovered parchment paper.
When I saw a deal on Amazon to buy 3 items and get one free, I decided to treat myself and buy 3 Silpat baking mats. Amazon has the best deal on these that I've seen and free shipping doesn't hurt, either!
My Chocolate Chip Cookies cooked through perfectly...
I've baked dozens of rolls on these mats with great results.
You can use and re-use these mats and I love that I can immediately move the cookies and put the mat on a cooled pan (you don't want to put raw cookie dough on a hot pan!).
To clean them, just use a little dishwashing soap on a hot, wet rag, wipe the surface clean and rinse it clean under warm water. Give it a little shake and let it air dry.
As easy as these mats are to use, they need a little TLC.
1. Do not use in an oven hotter than 450º F.
2. Do not use the mat for ANY cutting.
3. Store the mat flat when not in use. (I store them in my baking sheets.)
I am sure there are many other uses for this great mat. What have you used it for?
How long have you had your mats and are they still working well?
I would love to hear from you ~
