Can I Use Nonstick Baking Spray Instead of Parchment Paper?

Parchment paper can be expensive. Find out if you can use nonstick baking spray instead of parchment paper. Plus, get our must-have tips and recipes for making the most of parchment paper.

Parchment paper is an expensive product. Although parchment makes it easy to remove cookies and other baked goods from baking sheets and almost eliminates cleanup, the product is a luxury. For most kinds of cookies and baked goods, nonstick cooking spray is a great inexpensive alternative. Save parchment for delicate cookies, such as macaroons, meringues, and thin cutout cookies, where its perfectly nonstick surface will help eliminate breakage. And when you do choose to use parchment paper, remember that it can be used more than once. It can typically be used up to three times. Although it becomes a bit brown, it still does its job even after being used repeatedly.
