25 ways to use your silpat

Have you heard of the silpat® or the bonMAT? If you’ve heard of it chances are you know you can make cookies on it.  BUT, did you know that it’s good for so much more than just cookies? On the other hand, if you’re like I was, then you might not even know what I’m talking about.  That’s okay, I had no clue until I went to my first cooking class.  Then it was love at first sight and I was completely smitten.
