And now… on to the giveaway!
I’ve been a fan of Silpat® non-stick baking mats for a long time, ever since I first saw (an often-used and very well-loved) one in my aunt’s kitchen. Although the first one I bought myself was (disappointingly) the wrong size for my cookie sheets, ever since then they’ve been in indispensable part of my kitchen. I recently purchased a second, one for each of my half-sheet pans, so I can churn out perfectly-baked cookies twice as fast. As much as I love baking with parchment paper, nothing beats the convenience and miraculous non-stickiness of a Silpat® (I mean, macarons? I won’t bake them on anything but). Speaking of macarons, a little birdie tells me that Sansa Demarle is soon to be releasing a special macaron baking mat with printed circular guides for perfect, even-sized macarons. To say I’m excited would be an understatement.
The Roul’Pat® is a newer product that I am equally as thrilled about. It’s basically a giant Silpat® that serves as a non-stick work surface. Whereas before, when making pie crust or pizza dough, I had to lug out the heavy marble pastry board or big wooden cutting board to use as my work surface. The Roul’Pat® is so much more convenient, and not to mention takes up much less space in the cabinet too.
One lucky winner will receive one of each of these fabulous products: a half-size Silpat® Non-Stick Baking Mat (valued at $26.95) and a full size Roul’Pat® Non-Stick Countertop Workstation Mat (valued at $54.95). I promise you, these two products will quickly become some of your favorite tools in the kitchen.

I would make some Thumbprint cookies with Raspberry Jam (homemade jam, of course!) My friend’s 30th bday is coming up and she LOVES raspberry everything… So it would be a perfect chance!
I love my marble slab for making dinner rolls but it weighs a ton. Would love to try with a roul’pat!
Chili chocolate meringues… Or world peace cookies… Or chocolate shortbread… Or, well, anything chocolate.
I would love to make some scones. I keep working on perfecting my recipe (my husband loves being a tester for the process), but they are just not “there” yet…
i may be tempted to try macarons!
There is so much to pick from… simple sugar cookies. That is what I would make. I could make them with a hint of almond in the dough possibly. Yum! Thank you for offering free giveaways. I would photograph the cookies for you if you would like. My address is Debra L. Cicchella, 404 South Spring Street, P. O. Box 333, Caney, Kansas 67333. Thank you again!

Ooh – they would be put to immediate use with some berry scones.
Nothing screams summer like fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. They would definitely be the first thing I would make with the silpat mat.
I am trying to master macarons!
Chocolate chip cookies!
I would try my best to make peanutbutter cookies like my mother used to make for me at the last minute, when I told her that I needed them for school the next day. ( @ 8 o’clock a night) and she would make me stay up and cook with her.
A rhubarb galette!
Bread! I love that non-stick work surface. I’m always rolling out on my counter with tons of flour and then clean up takes forever!

I think the first thing I’d make would be a free-form tart, so that I could roll out the dough on the Roul’Pat, then bake the tart on the SilPat. And cherries are showing up in the market now–perfect!
Pizza dough on the Roul’Pat, smoky miso tofu and biscotti on the Silpat!
I would bake my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe to see the difference! Thanks!
Chocolate chip cookies with the disks instead of the chips so the cookies have the cookie-chocolate strata inside!
I would definitely want to try this out with some delicious chocolate chip cookies. Yum! Thanks for the chance to win!
I would make macarons and see if it works differently from using parchment paper.

I’d make a berry pie on the Roul’Pat (lovely idea!) and bake up some coconut macaroons on the Silpat. I’m with you, Silpats are great to bake with :-)
I’d make some oatmeal bars!
Oatmeal cranberry chocolate chip cookies :) yum!!
I’d make pizza. I’ve been using the kitchen table to roll out dough since my big cutting board broke, and this sounds so much better.
Cookies & pie! Both items would make my life so much easier! Thanks for the chance to win~
I am working up the courage to try macaroons!

I make nut rolls for my husband – a recipe handed down to us from his family in Pennsylvania – since it is loaded with sugar and walnuts, a silpat would be a perfect baking companion to keep the rolls from sticking.
I would make a batch of delicious orange cookies!
