My kids love baking cookies with me in the kitchen. They always smell so good and we all love having them with a big glass of milk.
Most of the time our cookies turn out pretty good. But, there are always those times when I am busy doing chores, nursing the baby, or can’t hear the timer going off over the sounds of my kids and/or the dogs barking.
Just a few minutes too long in the oven and the cookies are burned. We are left scraping the black off of the bottom and eating whatever is left. Then there are the times they don’t get spaced out evenly and end up too gooey in the middle.
Yesterday we tried out our new Silpat Mat. It’s so neat because you can spread out your cookies evenly. It makes it easier to bake with kids too because they know exactly where to place the cookies.
What makes Silpat mats so awesome is that they are non-stick, no need for cooking spray, which I confess I sometimes forget anyways.
These mats leave little room for error. They are breathable and make it less likely for your cookies to burn and more likely for them to get an even bake. Cleanup is easy too since the cookie dough doesn’t stick to the mat!
Believe me when I say our Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookies came out perfectly baked on the first batch. The best batch of cookies I’ve had in a long time.
