baking sheet for hot cross buns

I'm trying a new recipe for hot cross buns this year and the recipe is specifying a jelly roll pan.

Is there any reason to use this instead of a regular cookie sheet? It doesn't seem like the buns would ooze out the sides of the baking sheet.

  1. I use both a regular baking sheet and round cake tins to make my HCB's. When they are on the baking sheet they have more crust on the sides (not necessarily a bad thing) and in the cake tin the crust is only on the top. A cookie sheet will work just fine.

    1. A jelly roll pan is really the same thing as a half sheet pan, which I use as cookie sheets. A cookie sheet would be fine.
