    I finally figured out why some did and some didn't - silicon baking sheets.

    They stay nicely curled on parchment but I guess the silicon doesn't have enough grip to keep them from uncurling as the layers spread.

    Just sharing.

    You are most likely correct.
    Parchment absorbs a small amt of the moisture and fat released in the baking process.
    Whatever is being baked will become crisper sooner and retain the shape better.
    As always @rpooley I will gladly dispose of all of your rejects lol.
    Think of it as hurricane relief and therefore a tax deductible expense!
