Cooking with Parchment Paper

Ever thought about cooking with parchment paper? Maybe you already have! Whether you’re new to the idea or a seasoned expert, here are a few quick tips to make the most of this unique cooking style:

  • Where can I find it? Parchment paper for cooking is usually found next to the waxed paper and tinfoil in your local grocery store.
  • What are the major benefits? No sticking! Line baking pans, cookie sheets and cake molds with parchment paper for a no-mess alternative. It’s also grease- and moisture-resistant.
  • Bag it! Wrap meats and veggies in parchment paper, complete with spices and seasonings to cook “en papillote.” It traps all the flavor goodness right in an envelope!

For the first time this year, I've been using parchment paper to bake. I made cranberry/orange biscotti and it was suggested that I use this for a "no-stick" result. It just worked. It was very pleasing not to have to scrape the biscotti off of the pan when I was finished. I also let the biscotti chill in the fridge and then put it right in the oven on the same paper with excellent results.
