First, she must decide what she would like to make; a batch of cookies is a great way to inaugurate your new baking mat. Make up your mix and don’t worry about adding or degreasing the amount of fat in the batter. If it is your first time using the silicone baking mat, be sure to wash it with warm, soapy water. Place it on a traditional metal cookie sheet, spaced at least two inches apart. This is because cookies placed on a silicone baking mat will spread a little more than if you were using a cookie sheet alone. You still should pre-heat your oven, but you won’t have to moderate your oven temperatures any because you are using a baking sheet. Once the cookies are done, let them cool for two minutes, then transfer them to a cookie cooling rack. Cookie cool racks also come in silicone, so you may want to add that to your collection of silicone baking products. When removing the cookies from the tray, be sure to take. You do not want to make any rips or digs in your cooking tray. It will decrease the life of your product. click here to read more information on Non stick silicone baking mats vs. pastry mats

Now that your cookies are cooling, you can work on your cleanup. Once the silicone baking mat is cool, wash it with warm, soapy water. After it is dry, you can either roll it up or lay it down to dry. You don’t need to do anything more than that. You can now tuck away your silicone baking away until your next venture in baking. Silicone mats are dishwasher safe, so if your little love nest has a dishwasher, don’t be afraid to load your silicone baking mat in their for a spin.

Now it is time to taste your cookies. Guess what, there won’t be any flavor or odor left over from the silicone baking mat. There won’t be any of the parchment smell or taste in your cookies if you were to use a parchment paper for your baking. There won’t be any of the wax smell or melted wax on cookie sheets that comes from using wax paper in your baking.
