Hi there,
I'm having my very first baking adventure in my own kitchen. The recipe I chose (peanut butter pillows) mentions the use of wax paper. I'm just wondering if Parchment paper is suitable enough? Are the two basically interchangeable, or will wax paper do something the parchment will not?

please help. this whole cooking/baking thing is a new endeavor and I'm feeling a bit lost and timid on some things. Also, stocking a totally empty kitchen is kind of pricey and I thought, as of last night, that I had finally picked up everything I'd needed for the project.

help!!!
((thank you!))

Are you referring to this recipe?
http://www.theppk.com/2009/03/peanut-butter-pillows/

So the use of wax paper in the recipe just seems she is shaping the cookies before putting them on the parchment paper to put in the oven. I'm not sure why you couldn't do the shaping directly on the baking sheet except if you pressed them down, you might want to lift them off the paper then lay them back down. The wax paper is just giving a surface to work on so the cookies won't stick but they shouldn't stick on parchment paper either. So I'd say go for it.

In case this is not obvious they are not interchangeable. Never ever put wax paper in the oven!

Raises hand identifying self as guilty of finding this out the hard way....man, that is a lot of smoke.


I just use parchment for everything now: I just lightly grease it if I need to use it for a wax paper application.
