Can you substitute a cookie sheet for a jelly roll pan?


Answer by  Roland27 (16334)

Yes. They are pretty much the same thing. The only difference is the Jelly Roll pan has slightly taller sides than a Cookie sheet has. If what you're making is too tall for a Jelly Roll pan go ahead and try to use a Cake Pan to bake your goodies on.

If you are making a cake or cake roll for which the recipe specifically calls for a jelly roll pan, a cookie sheet should not be substituted. However, if you are simply baking cookies, biscuits, or similar items, a jelly roll pan works just as well. The difference is the lip around the edge.


Answer by  lmac (355)

Cookie sheets and jelly roll pans are essentially interchangeable in most circumstances. You cannot substitute them if what you are baking, like a thin cake for a jelly roll, needs a lipped edge.

Yes,I used to do it. You can take a piece of wax paper or a paper bag and line the pan with it. This will keep the cake from sticking to the pan. Once the cake is done the paper will peel off the pan.

If you are making regular drop cookies, it really doesn't matter which you use. Bar cookies would require the jelly roll pan to prevent any spills.

Yes you can. As long as the cookie sheet has a raised edge deep enough to keep your items from flowing to the bottom of the oven. You may need to use something with an edge, like aluminum foil to keep the batter in place.
