I have a quick question. I have some cookie dough cooling in the fridge for a new recipe, and this recipe calls for the cookies to be baked on parchment paper. The cookies need a while before they're ready to bake, so I could run out to the store and grab some, but I'd really rather not make the trip if I don't have to. Can I use something else instead? Wax paper, for example? Or perhaps just cook them straight on the cookie sheet? Is, perhaps, the author of this recipe just trying to save me some cookie sheet cleanup? Or is the parchment paper a necessity, if the recipe calls for it?

The paper is to prevent sticking. You could try spraying the cookie sheet.

Parchment paper is a great tool if you have it other wise spray with some non stick spray, then when you are out look for it most large super mkt. carry it next to foil and plastic wrap it does not spoil >:-))
