Parchment paper

Is there any way to pull parchment paper off the roll, cut it and
"Not have it want to curl"

Isn't that annoying?!

The only way I've found to solve that problem is after I tear it off the roll, I wad it up in a little ball as tightly as I can, then smooth it out. Works like a charm.

Helps get some aggression out about the curling, too.

Depending on what I'm using it for that depends.

Baking sheets. I measure just past the edges and then tape the corners with masking tape. Who's going to be looking at the bottom of a cookie sheet anyways? Those that do. Probably shouldn't.

Crafts. Duct tape. It sticks better to the tiled counters.

Maybe a small press with a steam iron would work. Sounds like more of a hassle. I've noticed when it's used in my pie maker that does let off a steam the edges are flat after use.

Cut the corners off?

I put it down on the counter or baking sheet with the curled side up and make a small fold around each side, near the edge. This keeps the surface smooth.

After tearing off a sheet, I curl it over the edge of the counter to roll out the curl. Works for me.

Thanks everyone, I just tried the Iron method and it works great, only took a minute, that curl went flat as a board.

I don't see myself heating up a seam iron every time I want to bake cookies.

King Arthur Flour sells parchment paper in pre-cut sheets. 1/4 sheet pan, 1/2 sheet pan and full sheet pan sizes.
