Most of us keep ingredient alternatives or substitutions for those occasions we may not have enough of a certain ingredient, but another equally important list I keep is a pan substitution list that is practical.

Can you use a cookie sheet with a rim instead of a jelly roll pan? I have always wanted to try making a pumpkin roll and see it says I need a jelly roll pan. My husband does not like pumpkin so this might be a one shot trial deal, so I don't want the expenditure. (Plus can't afford it anyway, lol.) Has anyone tried using a cookie sheet with a raised rim and how deep was the rim? I guess using a regular roasting pan would not work either. I see they sell non-stick jellyroll pans and wonder if that is a key to a successful jelly roll? Thanks to everyone one responds.

Try turning the cookie sheet upside down and use like a jelly roll pan. Should work for the one time for you to test.

I've used a cookie sheet before. I line it with parchment paper so the cake comes out easily. The cream cheese filling with win your husband over. NO body doesn't like Pumpkin Roll. It's my husband's favorite.

Yes. I just made one the other day. I made it on a cookie sheet that has a rim of 1/2". The cookie sheet was about 15 1/2" x 11. It did just fine. I didn't want to buy a jelly roll pan to make just the pumpkin roll. I put the pumpkin roll in the freezer for Thanksgiving.

To me, jelly roll pans and cookie sheets with edges are the same thing. I've often used edged cookie sheets for things other than cookies

Jelly roll pans are supposed to measure 10 1/2 by 15 1/2 by 1/2 inch, and they always have sides. Cookie sheets sometimes have sides and sometimes don't, it just depends on what you are using them for. A large cookie sheet with sides will probably work, but you may have a thicker or thinner cake layer, depending on if your cookie sheet is larger or smaller than a jelly roll pan. If you don't have parchment paper to use in the bottom of your pan, just use waxed paper and grease the top of it. Your cake should come out easily. Just peel the waxed paper off after removing the cake from the pan. Jelly rolls are a easy dessert to make, and they make a spectular presentation. Have fun, and may all your jelly rolls be light!

P.S. Did you know that if you use shiny cookie sheets with no sides, your cookies will rarely burn? Yup. Learned that in college Home Economics class, and it has proven true every time!

I often use a cookie sheet. If you don't want to use/buy parchment or wax paper.... foil, greased works great.

i bought an expensive jelly roll pan and found out that I like the cookie sheet much better. I usually line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. It cooks much faster and more uniformly, I think.

Thank you for the info! I have a variety of cookie sheets, so I'm gonna give it a go! Bonus!!! Thank you for the cookie tip! I've been baking for YEARS and consider myself a moderately seasoned home chef....I have never heard that trick before!

I'm making a recipe that calls for me to use a rimmed baking sheet. My problem is I don't have one. What can I use in place of the rimmed baking sheet that I don't have?

Any rimmed pan of any size can be used. Other baking pans like pie tins, cake tins, lasagna pans etc. will work. You just will have more batches of smaller sizes to serve
