I have been baking a lot over the last six months. I don’t know what has gotten into me! Maybe it’s this blog. Maybe it’s my preschool homeschool activities, or maybe it’s just my need to be more creative in the kitchen. As I find recipes online, I’ve noticed more and more people using parchment paper on their baking sheets. Hmmm? My mom never did this. I’ve never even knew the idea exisited until recently. Is that bad? Maybe it’s the greenie in me thinking about that paper waste.
When I was offered to try out a Silicone Baking Mat, I said Yes! I want to be a baker and see what this non-stick business is about. Reusable sheets that are bpa-free? Yes please!
Silicone Baking Mat
Bake on it, freeze it, refrigerate on it and roast on it! The first time I tested it out was when I was making homemade pizza rolls. I needed a surface that my wontons wouldn’t stick to and the silicone mat worked perfect! I moved into the freezer to harden my rolls before frying and I was quite impressed with my new kitchen gadget and I wasn’t even baking with it yet!
You Do Not Need Oil, Butter, Cooking Spray or Parchment Paper with These Mats. Use as is.
Do you know what an awesome feature is that I didn’t even think about until I researching my info for this post? They protect your pans too! If your baking sheets are like mine…they are turning brown and black and gross. It really affects the way our cookies are baked. This silicone mat not only protects your pans to keep in good condition, but helps with heat distribution for your baked goods.
I made my Healthy Breakfast Cookies on them. The leftover banana base left them quite a mess, but that is okay! Grabbed my silicone sheet and took it over to the sink where I wiped it down with soap and hot water. Viola! Mess gone. No more using my fingertips to scrap off the last hard chunks. This is a breeze!
Updated to add this particular product seems to be discontinued, but Amazon carries many brands and I highly recommend one. I use mine all the time!
