When you make cookies, and you don't want them to stick to the baking pan, you can either use a non-stick cooking spray, parchment paper or a Silpat. Silpat is a brand name of a silicone mat that is used for baking. The mat provides a non-stick surface without the use of cooking spray or parchment paper. The Silpat is a great alternative as it can be used over and over again, without having to buy more parchment paper or cooking spray. Silpat products were created by M. Guy Demarle, an experienced baker who was looking for a better way to bake baguettes. So he invented the first non-stick baking trays for baguettes in 1965. The trays used silicone coating. It was after this that he invented the Silpat mat. Did you know that pecans are a healthy addition to cookie recipes?
