Recipe calls for parchment paper and I don't have any!
I want to make these delicious lemon ricotta cookies...
It says to spoon the dough onto parchment paper laid on cookie sheets.. but I don't have any parchment paper. What should I do?
Thanks in advance.
the parchment just prevents the cookies from sticking to the sheet pan & keeps the bottoms of the cookies from getting greasy. if you have a silpat you can use that...otherwise just grease the sheets, but watch the temperature closely to make sure the cookie bottoms don't get too brown.
Thanks everyone! I'm using the silicon baking mat-- which I've always wondered what to use for before! In fact, now I'm going to get another one. Also, I'm not letting them sit on the sheet for 20 minutes after coming out of the oven as suggested in the recipe because they were getting too brown on the bottom, so it's not as slow as I thought. I really recommend this recipe... delicious!
