We bake a lot, and when we bake on a sheet pan we no longer reach for cooking spray or parchment paper for non-stick cooking, we grab a silicone baking mat. I recently got a new two-pack of 1Easylife silicone baking mats to review. Not only do they line our pans, but they are making our baking so much more simpler.
The 1Easylife Silicone Baking Mats fit an ordinary half-sheet pan quite well. They fit perfectly on the length, but the width comes a little shy of reaching the edge, but it's not by much. These are great mats for rolling cookies or pie dough out on as they have the measurements to help you out. In the middle for when you need to roll items in a circle in a '5-6-7-8-9-10' inch diameter, and the edges give a ruler measurement in both inches and centimeters.
It's hard to see in the pictures that we took, but there are also yellow circles for cookie or roll placement on the sheet. Above you can see that my husband was preparing sweet peach rolls, and he placed one on each of the small circles. He used no oil or cooking sprays, and placed these sticky rolls right onto the 1Easylife baking mats. When they were fully risen, he popped them into the oven.
Here the sweet rolls are fresh right from the oven. Even though these rolls were cooked at 350 degrees, these silicone baking mats can take much more extreme heat and can take temperatures up to 480 degrees. These sheets are made of glass fibers that are food grade silicone covered with a thickness of 0.7mm, and are among the thickest silicone baking sheets you can purchase.
It was easy to transfer the rolls from the pan to the cooling rack. We have found that there is really no need to take our baked goods off the silicone mat to let them cool. Plus, cooking our rolls on a silicone mat will ensure that they don't get too brown on the bottom. That's good for when we cook an larger item - that let's the insides get done before the bottom gets too brown.
Once they were cool, my husband put them back into the cooled sheet pan to frost the rolls. What a cinch! The peachy-keen sweet rolls were delicious!
