It’s Tip Friday on Marilyn’s Treats. And todays tip is Lining a pan.
Lining a pan
This is by far my favorite technique for cookie baking. Parchment paper is coated with silicone, so cookies don’t stick to it; it can be reused again and again. Simply line the pan with parchment that stretches as far to the edge of the pan as possible. Silicone mats are another popular option. They’re more durable than parchment, and can be used thousands of times. Be careful not to cut anything on a silicone baking mat, as the mat can be damaged. For baking cookies, a thin silicone mat is preferable to a thick mat (often sold as a “kneading mat”).
