What is that paper called?

What is the paper called that you use in cooking? Not wax paper, but it's similar. You wrap fish and things in it to bake?

You better believe it! There are currently 72 chocolate chip cookies on my kitchen counter cooling and I would not have made them if I didn't have parchment paper.

I hear you. When I take my scones out of the oven, I just slip the parchment and scones off to cool and stick the pan back in the drawer without even wating for it to cool. A big help, when you're in the midst of other stuff and using all the space that it could cool in. Also great for wrapping leftover scones to warm in the microwave -- no toughening, no drying out.

So elighten me, how is parchment paper different from wax? I've never used it before.

doesn't have wax. i'm not sure what it's 'treated' with, tho - maybe some sort of silicone?

i use parchment paper to make pepperoni chips & cheese chips in my microwave

All I can say is I think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread! Cookies, candies, meatballs, pigs in blankets....NOTHING sticks to it! (we currently have about half of two 1000 sheet boxes (2 sizes) here at the bakery.

OK, thanks for the info. It's good to know you can't put wax paper in an oven.

Yes, excellent invention. Do any of you use silicone baking sheets?

Is THAT what it's used for?? I wish I had known before I threw away 4 full rolls when I was cleaning out mom's house. I thought it was for something special because I never saw her use it. No...guess who got to clean the cookie sheets all the time. You would think she would have let me in on that little secret. Is it expensive? Because if not, I may have to invest in some.

I've never used parchment paper...it sounds like something I should have been using all along!

I don't remember now what I paid last time, but no, not expensive and a roll lasts quite a long time. One of the other nice things about parchment is that it is reuseable. Just wipe it down with a damp cloth and save it for next time. You won't get the stains off, but the parchment is fine. After several uses, you'll have a good collection of stains, some real browning around the edges, and it'll be feeling a little brittle. Time to pitch it and take a new piece.

No worries - you would have figured it out if you had tried to use it in the oven.
