Thank you VBB for the package, including the letter.  What a nice surprise to find in my mailbox on Monday!

Nancy G. My jellyroll pan is a Baker's Secret brand. It's a really good brand. So is Wilton,I agree, I have to walk away from their items,especially around any holiday. I want all they have! I think I got my pan at Publix, or maybe Walmart. I can't remember.
Let us know how things turn out.

AnnMarie -- I wondered about the ancient cookie sheets I had stuffed "somewhere" in the garage.    I looked and ~blush~ found 6 almost new 12x17 heavy cookie sheets - with heavy edges!  Those will sub for jelly roll pans, won't they?
Embarassed
AND -- I found a brand new 12x18x2 Wilton cake pan!!  Good grief.  I really need to go out there again and keep looking. 
No telling what I'd find.

Nancy,I'm not sure about your cookie sheets. The jellyroll pan is about 3 inches deep,and the cookie sheets I have are no where near that depth. What I can tell you is,the jellyroll pan is perfect for the recipe that calls for it. You found a new cake pan! I had to force myself to drive PAST the craft store today,where I've bought some of my Wilton items. Can't say it will work for Easter!!!!

In Response to Re: gifts frorm VBB : I have 2 great recipes for you to try. Fudge-Filled Bars 1 Can (14 ounce size) Sweetened Condensed milk 1 package, 12 ounces of semi sweet Chocolate chips 2 Tb butter 2 tsp vanilla 2 packages, 18 ounces cookie dough, any flavor Pre heat oven to 350 degrees In a heavy sauce pan over medium heat, combine sweetened condensed milk, chocolate cips and butter; heat until the chips melt. Add vanilla.  Cool 15 minutes. Using floured hands press 1 1/2 packages of cookie dough into ungreased 15X10 jelly roll pan.  Pour cooled chocolate mixture over the top.  Crumble the remaining dough over the top of the chocolate mixture. Bake 25 to 30 minutes.  Cool. Cut into bars. This is adapted from  one that uses a cake mix  as a base. Buckeye Bars 2 packages of Cookie dough 1 Cup chopped peanuts, if desired. 1 Can, 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk 1/2 Cup peanut butter Mix the peanuts in to the cookie dough if you are going to use the peanuts. Follow the directions above for the cookie base.  Press into a 13X9 pan. Mix the  sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter in a small bowl until smooth. Spread the peanut butter mixture over the base.  Crumble the remaining cookie dough over the top. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until set.  Cool.  cut into bars. Store both of these at room temperature.

Thanks, Nikki. I wasn't sure how to use the cookie dough as I've never tried it before.  Both the recips sound really good.  Now I'll have to decide which to make.

Nancy, Wilton pans outlast the cheaper pans, I use to put Wilton on my wish list for Christmas, birthday & mother's day. I have some Wilton pans that are about 38 yr. old & in great shape. The fancy molds are more, but the normal pans go on sale. You can google Wilton & get an idea of the price & if you find it on sale, Walmart should match the price.  I bought 2 Wilton pans in Jan. that were on sale 1/2 off. I will give the butterfly cake pan as a gift & I do not know if I will keep or give as a gift the daisy pan.  I have bought so many 9 by 13 pans, that the next time Wilton has their's on sale, I will buy one.

I have 3 jelly roll pans and also use them as cookie sheets.  One is larger than the others.  They belonged to my grand  mother-in-law and she gave them to me about 47 years ago.  They aren't Wilton but sure have lasted well.  i do a lot of baking.

Do you guys remember the chocolate condensed milk?  It was only on the market for a short time.  I guess it didn't go over well.  Melting the chocolate chips with the regular condensed milk gives the same thing but is an extra step.

I thought I lost my coupons but hubby put them in his wallet to help me out!  I was so fraZZled looking for them.  I even dug through the trash.  Yes he did stand there with a smile and said,"what are your looking for?"  I told him he had better sleep with an eye open tonight and I may just hit him on the head!  I wouldn't but he dosen't know that!  LOL  Married 40 years and we still tease each other.

What brand of jelly roll pan do you have? Jelly roll pans typically come in two sizes. 10 cup and 12 cup and they are 1" deep. Never heard of one 3" deep. That sounds like a sheet cake pan.
