Sometimes we like certain products because of their beauty. Sometimes we like them because of their function. SILPAT mats fit the latter category. They are a fantastic boon to the frequent – and even sporadic – baker. Made of fiberglass and silicone, they can be used thousands of times. SILPAT mats never need greasing and can be laid on top of any cookie sheet. This eliminates mess on your pans and all cookies are easy to remove from the sheet. Environmentally friendly, you’ll never need parchment paper again – at least not to line a cookie sheet! Available online from many sites, I highly recommend SILPAT mats. Your family and friends will be particularly grateful when they see that you are willing to bake cookies much more often now!
