Parchment Paper Sheets are the Bomb

Today I have a quick kitchen tip, which involves sharing yet another awesome find from my recent unexpected shopping spree on the King Arthur Flour website. In fact, today’s item is what started the whole shopping spree to begin with!

I love my silicon baking mats and use them multiple times every week. (Side note: if you don’t have one already, hop to it!) As much I use my SILPAT, I do still use parchment paper for various projects, including when I make granola bars each week. (Side note #2: I cook granola bars on parchment paper, then tear the paper into small pieces to place between the layers of granola bars in my storage container. Works great!)

I don’t remember the details, but for some reason one day on Facebook two of my food blogging friends Barbara and Diane told me about flat parchment baking sheets. I had always just bought parchment paper in a roll at the grocery store and didn’t even know flat sheets existed. Diane and Barbara told me how awesome the sheets were so I decided to order some on the King Arthur website (along with many, many, many other wonderful items I didn’t know I needed but totally did).

Anyway, the bottom line is that I love the parchment paper sheets just as much as Diane and Barbara do. Those ladies were so right. The flat sheets are much easier to work with than the rolled up paper, which tends to curl easily when you’re trying to lay it out, and they fit perfectly in a cookie sheet. The flat parchment sheets are also easier to cut down to different sizes when making cakes. (Side note #3: You can also buy 9-inch and 8-inch round parchment paper sheets if you really don’t want to ever have to cut parchment paper yourself again.) One last benefit is the sheets that I got at King Arthur are also reusable. They’re pretty much magic.

Barbara lives in Utah and gets her parchment paper sheets at Orson Gygi. I am not fortunate enough to have a wonderful restaurant supply store near where I live, which is why I ordered mine online from King Arthur.

Happy parchment papering!

    Great post! I completely agree flat, parchment paper sheets are so much easier to use.

    I accidentally purchased a box at Fresh Market and was pleasantly surprised. The brand is “If You Care Parchment Baking Sheets”. It is packaged in a box that looks like it would contain a roll of parchment inside……but with each “pull” an individual sheet pops out and fits a standard sheet pan like a glove.

    I’m hooked!

  3. I always thought it was silly that they made individual parchment sheets… but then one time it was less expensive than the regular roll version, so i tried it out. Haven’t bought the roll version since! So much easier. And I no longer have lopsided sheets from cutting it on that stupid sharp edge.

  4. I know it’s a little thing, but parchment really does make me love baking even more. So glad you love them as much as I do.

  5. every time I cut a sheet of parchment from the roll I thing “I need the sheets” you are convincing me I need to get them

  6. Smart!! I detest cutting parchment. Lol.

  7. I always tell myself I don’t need these. But I really think I do!!!!!
