Cookie Sheets

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Most recipes call for putting cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet...but I'm terrified to do that for fear they will stick.

Does it change anything with the cookie if you grease the pan anyway?

If the recipe says ungreased cookie sheet then do just that. You can always buy non-stick cookie sheets.

I line all my cookie sheets with parchment paper when I bake my cookies.

If you grease when it is not called for, it can result in cookie bottoms that are too browned, cookies spreading out, greasy cookies, cookies that don't set up the way they were supposed to.

I always bake them on parchment paper, it works so well! I even buy the sheets already cut at kitchengifts.com. I think they call them "half sheets". I guess I'm lazy, but they are so convenient and they don't want to curl up like when you cut it off the roll!

Haha, aren't they? Likely because they are patented and have no competition for the exact same product. Hubby got me one for Christmas and it was $29.95 plus tax here, not even the biggest for my cookie sheets. But then, you should see the price of the cookie sheet he got to go with it, geesh, should be using diamonds in those cookies instead of chocolate chips. Vollrath cookie sheet, one for $54.95, geesh!

Remember if the recipe says ungreased cookie sheet the dough has more than enough butter or other grease type product in it.

That is nearly always true except maybe in the case of some recipes for things like oatmeal cookies with raisins and brown sugar that have a tendency to stick even when you grease, grrhhh, haha!

Well, the last several years, I bake more undecorated cookies than decorated. They just are not as popular here for some reason. I make them mainly at Christmas time, not this year though, I made all undecorated ones, putting them in baskets. But I go back to the days when we used real old fashioned royal icing with eggwhites which just isn't safe anymore unless they are pasteurized. And I used to use a spoon and a toothpick to decorate with, at least way back. I am modern now though, haha! I never actually think to take pictures of cookies though, I will have to start.
I don't find sugar cookies quite as popular in Canada as they are in the U.S. except for favours and such. But they just didn't catch on commercially here for the most part. More so in the Toronto area I think.
I don't particularly like them either, I mean I can take them or leave them but the idea of icing on a cookie isn't a big plus for me. I did make a lot of them when my girls were little, for their school activities and bake sales and such.
I tend to decorate shortbreads or ginger cookies more so than sugar cookies. I think I like the look of decorated cookies more than the taste and I find most people I deal with are like that too.

I don't think sugar cookies are all that popular in the US to eat. They sell because they're pretty but the people who buy them aren't buying them to eat them themselves.

If you don't have parchment, substitute aluminum foil on the cookie sheets.

I'm a big fan of parchment paper however just after Xmas I was in Zehr's and I saw their Silpat's for $20.00...so I bought 4 of 'em! Gotta love deals like that!

Hey Squirrelly, is it worth it? Kinda like a Le Cruset pot would be?
