Alternative Uses for Baking Sheets

When I see an empty baking sheet, my mind goes straight to cookies. I'm already gathering select recipes for my holiday baking party. I usually bake at least a dozen different kinds from November through December for family and friends. But until then, how can I use my baking sheets for other kitchen tasks? It's definitely a tool  I cannot live with out.

If you have a small kitchen like I do, or just like to keep things to a minimum, it's always best to find multiple uses for kitchen items. Here are a few ways to use your baking sheets when you aren't making cookies.

Make homemade French fries and bake on your cookie sheet with a bit of olive oil for a crispy treat. Try regular baking spuds or sweet potatoes.

Slice up winter veggies and roast on high for a nutritious treat. Finish with sea salt and fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme.

Use ready-made pizza dough and roll out the entire length of your baking sheet for a family sized pie. Let your kids pick the toppings and make a night of it.

Moms, what else do you use your baking sheets for?

I use mine to freeze balls of cookie dough or veggies that I want frozen.  When the food is frozen, it's easy to remove to a freezer container, and the food is easy to remove in individual portions instead of one big frozen chunk.

I use them for baking meat, fish, pizza, etc.  I also use them for my DD's Makit & Bakit suncatchers.

I use them for cooking cheesy garlic bread and DH cooks his pizza rolls or chicken nuggets on them.

My son uses them for messy art activities! We have special ones just for crafts/play.

They are perfect for using under play dough, clay, floam, gak, and any gooey mess
