You may recall that a few posts ago I had a ‘sticking’ issue with my gluten-free cookies. Stupidly I’d forgotten that my OH had bought me a Slipat. A what I hear you ask? Well it’s basically a non-slip cookie mat & is Amazing. Fact.

The first time I tried to use it didn’t really work. I placed it on upside down baking tray, which meant that the Slipat wasn’t flat. I didn’t think that this would be such a big deal. How wrong I was. There’s nothing worse than seeing your cookie dough slide off the edge onto the bottom of the oven. Plus I spooned way too much dough on & didn’t leave enough space between them.

My OH suggested using two smaller tins, turning them upside down so that the slipat would stay flat. Genius.

The slipat truly is non-stick so that if it isn’t sitting flat, as the cookie dough heats up, everything will move if it is a slight angle.

Silpat Cook MatIt is also essential to space the dough out.  This bothers me a little bit as I want to be able to eat my cookies as quickly as possible! But because the cookies are quite thin they cook quickly. This means that it’s actually quite a quick process & as I used dough that had been in the freezer it was quite easy to sort out the right size portion.

The slipat was amazing. It was super easy to keep clean in between baking & just needed a light wipe at the end of the session. I can heartily recommend this product for all your non-slip baking needs. You do need to keep it flat & treat it delicately (it comes with instructions) but it’s totally worth it. It fits my oven quite well & my oven is quite small so should be okay with most. As it’s quite big you can fit a number of cookies on there.

Happy baking! x

PS – there aren’t pictures of baked cookies because I, ahem, tested a few & then had to pack them away asap for fear that I wouldn’t have any left to take into work!
