If a cookie recipe does not call for parchment paper, can you use it to line the pan anyway?

I aked 8 dozen cookies yesterday using parchment paper, and it was soooo easy. I'd like to use it for all my cookies.

  • Can parchment paper be used for all cookies? "Parchment paper can be used for any cookie that is baked individually on a baking sheet. A pan of bar cookies--such as Toll House cookies or blondies--can also be lined with parchment paper in a "sling" that allows the cook to easily remove the entire pan of cookies in one move, as suggested by "Cook's Illustrated Magazine." Parchment paper is oven-safe up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit."

  • I didn't know any cookie recipes actually called for parchment paper. I thought you could use it regardless of recipe. I say go for it.

  • Absolutely. I use it under anything that might stick, like biscuits or rolls or even meatloaf. I like to use it instead of using foil.

  • I have also used a silicone liner for cookies where the recipe didn't call for any liner - I love both.
