    Rolling Out Dough On Parchment Paper

    Parchment is a happy medium for preparing and baking cookies. It's oven-safe, so you can use one sheet for rolling out, cutting and baking; you won't have to lift individual cookies onto your cookie sheet. With parchment, bottoms won't burn and clean-up is quick and easy; parchment is non-stick, so there's no need to use non-stick pan spray.
