I love these baking mats.

I do.

I use them every.time I bake cookies.

There’s just something about they way the cookies bake and melt to perfection when on the baking mat.

I also love that I can slip the baking mat off the cookie sheet, right onto the cooling rack…and somehow it helps the cookies cool more evenly. The mat holds the heat somewhat, but let’s the cookies cool down at the same time. (It seems to me anyways.)

Couple of other things I love.

No greasing the baking sheets. Easy to clean.

The SilPain baking mat is new to my collection, but I love how makes the perfect crust and evenly browns the bread. (It’s designed to do so!)

And the Roul’pat mat is not only perfect for rolling pie crusts, cinnamon rolls and the like without the need for extra flour, but also for crafts. I used it the other day for one of the boys’ Thanksgiving craft. (I was going for super easy clean-up, and it worked!)

    My favorite cookies, no matter what time of year, are NY times chocolate chip cookies. And they simply must be baked on a silpat. To die for!

  3. Jennifer C. says

    I love Russian Tea Cakes or Mexican wedding cakes — different names, same cookie. Actually, my mom calls them Snowballs!

  4. Cherie says

    I bake many cookies for cookie trays during the holiday season, but an all time favorite is the traditional praline.

  5. Kelly Zublick says

    My fav Christmas cookies are Kourambiedes (Greek)! Been making them for years since I had a friend PRY the recipe from his mom! :)

  6. Krista says

    My favorite Christmas cookie is good old chocolate chip. But I just made chocolate chip and POPCORN cookies for the first time and they were amazing. I think they are my new favorite.
