October 14th is National Dessert Day.

That’s a broad category. How does one narrow down a favorite dessert AND please all the people (well, most of the people)?

We decided that so many desserts can be made using baking sheets (and because they are so useful all over the kitchen) that our October 2019 give-away would be:

  • One NordicWare Naturals Half Baking Sheet Pan
  • One NordicWare Naturals Quarter Baking Sheet Pan
  • One Silpat mat for the half baking sheet
  • One cookbook called Sheet Pan Magic

Do you know that ALL NordicWare products are made in the United States? NordicWare has been a family run business since it’s inception in 1946. You can read more about that here. These are the very same sheet pans that Roy uses at home and when baking goodies for the store. He swears by them. Check this out

Even Silpat mats have been around since the mid-1960s. They were invented by Monsieur Guy Demarle who, with the help of his Silpat mats, earned the distinction for the best baguettes in France. You can read more about that here. Silpat mats were born in France and continue to be made there today.

We believe that the magic of a good sheet pan is that you can do so many different things with it. For example:

  • cookies
  • bars
  • squares
  • granola
  • cake rolls
  • biscuits
  • cinnamon rolls
  • croissants
  • one-pan breakfast
  • bacon in the oven
  • complete dinners
  • use as a base when making tiny tarts
  • place your dipped cookies on them to cool
  • bake meatballs
  • under a spring-form pan
  • to catch oven spill-overs
  • as a serving tray
  • fill it with bowls of condiments for burger or taco night

How would YOU use your sheet pans? Let us know in the comments below. And don’t forget to visit the store and enter our drawing. Remember, no purchase necessary, one paper entry per person.

Good luck and we look forward to your next visit!
