Parchment paper is hard to handle when preparing and baking fragile pastry dough. Parchment paper is ok for baking cookies. Sturdy baking mats and liners will replace parchment paper. It’s easy to slide a baking mat onto a cookie sheet before placing your fragile pastry dough or cookies in the oven. You will no longer have to worry about running out of parchment paper because baking mats are made from durable reusable material. After your pastries or cookies are done baking, wash the baking mat off or you can place it into a dishwasher. All baking mats are non-stick, which means that you don’t have to worry about your cookies or pastries sticking. Baking mats, liners and parchment have a great impact on the final product result. If half of the muffin is stuck in the pan it can be very frustrating because all that hard was for nothing. Whether you are baking bread, muffins or cupcakes or fresh fruit turnovers the right baking mat or liner will keep them from sticking to the pan. You will save money by buying a baking mat set because they will last you for years whereas a throwaway liner will need to be replaced after every use.
