I have told you all before that I am not the cook in the family.  Nor am I the baker.  I don’t care for cooking, but when I do it I need a recipe – I can’t just throw things together and presto we have a magical yummy meal.  My husband on the other hand can.  He makes amazing meals doing that and I love them.

I thought and thought about what I could do for a recipe to test out this new amazing Baker’s Mat – Silicone Baking Mat.  We first made these Peanut Butter Banana Cookies, but since it was from a blogger I didn’t want to steal her recipe to post on my site and really wanted a recipe to share with my Baker’s Mat review.  They were good and I was already amazed by the Baker’s Mat just by testing out those cookies.

I then brought out the bag of Craisins© I had to grab a handful for a snack and saw a recipe on the back and thought there it is, my cookies to share!

This Baker’s Mat is amazing.  I, in fact, need another two or three.  It never once was difficult to get the cookies off the mat.  Also is easy to wash and did indeed survive the dishwasher – I was a little nervous about that one.  This thing WORKS.

Buy one at Amazon and you will not be disappointed, I promise you.  In fact, you’ll probably be wanting two or three more like myself.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    I love these things, i have used them both at Subway when i worked there and in the bakery of the convenience/gas station i worked at in Idaho. They are amazing, I would love to have a couple for here at home.

  • They really are. I am in awe over it!

  • Kristen Warren
