How do you 'flatten out' parchment paper on a roll?
I have a roll of parchment paper, and of course, when I cut it to the size I want to use, any time I want to put it in a baking sheet or baking pan or loaf pan, it rolls up on itself.
I've tried folding it "with" the way it rolls and folding it "against" the way it rolls. I've tried flattening it overnight between two cookie sheets, and I've tried folding it into fours... it still rolls up on me.
I know I could put a dab of something in the corners to hold it down, but the *paper memory* of the "roll" is so strong, I'd have to use industrial strength something! I know I could put some kind of weighted item in the corners but when they are removed, the paper rolls over or under onto the cookies or whatever, depending on how I've laid down the parchment paper.
I just want to cut a bunch of papers to size and get them to lay flat.
Am I missing something?? Thanks for any help, suggestions, stories, or jokes about this!
