Lining baking pans in toaster ovens

I want to bake cookies in my toaster oven. Is it safe to use a Silpat mat or parchment paper to line the baking pan? Is greasing the pan the best option, even though it's a bit messy?

Parchment paper works. I've never used a SilPat.

I'm glad parchment paper is okay.

Silicone mat versus parchment paper

I recently got a silicone mat and I use it in my toaster oven all the time. I like the way it evenly cooks through food through without burning the bottom. Parchment paper won't protect the bottom of the food like the silicone fiberglass weave mat will. That's just my preference (cookies were amazing on the mat).

I got mine through Amazon at Non-stick Silicone Baking Sheet, Mat - Fiberglass Weave Core - FDA and LFGB Approved - Even Temperature Baking - Safe for Freezer, Oven, Microwave - Heat Resistant up to 480 Degrees - Easy Clean & Storage, One Year Guarantee (9.5" x 14.3") : Amazon.c. I use the smaller one for the toaster oven and the bigger one for the full size oven.

Is this the French-made Silpat?

Parchment is excellent as far as non stick. My wife uses parchment for cookies all the time and we use it for many other kitchen duties.

But use caution in a toaster oven. The heating elements are very close to the wire shelves.
I put a roll wrapped in parchment paper into my toaster oven once and it started to burn the paper.
No big deal resulted except for the roll was ruined. Just my experience.
