I love to bake, not cook.  I hate touching raw meat, but love to bake any sweet.  The worst part of baking is cleaning up.  There always seems to be quite a mess when you’re done baking.

I have always wanted to use silicone baking mats.  They seem to be able to accomplish two things at one time.  I don’t have to use cooking spray, the food won’t stick to the mat, and I won’t have to wash the cookie sheets because they are covered by the silicone mats.  Once I got the hang of using the silicone mats they worked out pretty well.

I was making cookies called “Whippersnappers.”  They are super easy to make but do have any oil in them so they will stick to the pan without using a ton of cooking spray.

Whippersnappers
       1 box of cake mix (pick your flavor)
       1 egg
       1 small container of Cool Whip (8 oz.)
       ½ cup powdered sugar
Mix the cake mix, egg and Cool Whip all together.  Drop a small spoonful in the powdered sugar and coat the outside of the cookie.  Place the ball on a greased cookie sheet.  About 12 per sheet.  Lightly press the balls to flatten before putting in the oven.  Bake the cookies at 350° for 10 minutes.  Let cool on sheet for 2 minutes before moving to a wire rack to completely cool.

These truly are the easiest cookies to make.  The cookie is whatever flavor of cake mix you select. Since we are now in the fall season, but not quite yet to Thanksgiving I thought making Spice cookies with Spice Cake mix would be perfect. They give that warm scent that reminds you of fall flavors.  When baking the cookies the trick is to make sure you let the cookies cool enough before you get them off the cookie sheets.  They also have to cook long enough but not burn.

The first sheet I tried to get the cookies off of I did not let them cook long enough and they stuck to the silicone mat.  The second sheet I let cool long enough but did not let cook long enough.  The cookies needed the entire 10 minutes and I gave them about 3 minutes to cool and it worked.  The cookies peeled right off the silicone mat without any problems.  Every batch after that came off like clockwork.

I wondered how it would be cleaning the silicone mats.  If you can put them in high temperatures in the oven, why can’t you put them in the dishwasher?  The mats say that they are not dishwasher safe.  I hand washed the mat with soap.  The mat was easy to wash, but I hate having to hand wash any dishes.  I didn’t have to wash the cookie sheets.  I cleaned them with a dry dish towel and put them away.  Either way I have to hand wash something either the mat or the cookie sheet.  The pro to the silicone mat is that I didn’t have to use any cooking spray on the mats eliminating the extra calories and fat.  That just means I can eat one more cookie and justify it!
