    Can I use anything in the place of parchment paper?

    I have a box of chocolate stuffed bakery rolls that I have to thaw out for tomorrow and it says they have to be on parchment paper. I don't have any and won't be able to get any tonight. Any idea what I should do? Skip it altogether? Will they be ok if I just thaw them on a baking sheet and put them in the oven like that?

    I have no idea! I did a simple google search for "substitute for parchment paper" and got several hits. Just by reviewing the sample text in the search results I saw answers like:

    - there is no substitute for parchment paper
    - some people use brown grocery bags, but they ignite at 450
    - someone else's site suggested using plain white paper
    - another site recommended silicone baking mat

    Hmmm...

    You can use regular paper and just grease it, or so the Frugal Gourmet used to say.

    non-stick aluminum foil as substitute for parchment paper in baking

    Since I saw warnings about using paper (some contain toxins), paper bags and waxed paper (can ignite at 400 degrees; wax and wax vapor are not safe, etc.), I tried non-stick aluminum foil (Reynolds), and it seemed to work quite well.
