There was a vegetarian restaurant in Paris back in the 1970s that served an unusual dessert: a bundle of thinly sliced pears, plums and peaches cooked in a packet of white baking paper. The paper had a smooth, waxy finish that allowed the tender fruit to steam - but not turn to mush - in the oven. Cooking the fruit in parchment paper retained moistness and condensed the delicate flavors. It couldn't have been simpler or more delicious. Cooking en papillote, in parchment, is an old French method that has been around for centuries.

Cooks may wonder about the difference between wax paper and parchment paper. Can they be used interchangeably in baking? Wax paper is lightweight tissue paper coated on both sides with paraffin. Parchment paper is heavier nonstick paper that is treated with sulfuric acid and coated with silicone. It is sold bleached and unbleached. Parchment paper is grease-proof and moisture-resistant. Wax paper is not as moisture-proof. Both are used in baking, but not always interchangeably.

Makes 18 servings 1 pound of unsalted butter, softened 11/2 cups of sifted 10X or confectioner's sugar (Sifting is a must, due to massive lumpage) 4 cups of flour 21/2 teaspoons of sea salt 1. Beat the butter and sugar with a mixer until fluffy. Then, I prefer to mix in the flour and salt by hand. This will avoid over mixing, potentially creating a tough cookie. (We may desire that quality in a person, but not in our shortbread.) 2. Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper, the baker's best friend, leaving an overhang to facilitate removing the baked product.

Microwave ovens are still on the list of items that make a better office, and, with this in mind, we have created three lunches. All are low in fat, yet high in protein, and come with instructions to help you begin assembling them at home. The Oriental Scallops Wrap-Up may be partially made up of ingredients collected from a salad bar on the way to work. Parchment paper is the key to the success of these lunches. It is stiffer than wax paper and can be secured at the top of each pack with a good twist.

Here are step-by-step instructions for making your own matzo for Passover: 1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven while it's preheating. 2. In a large bowl, mix 2 cups of all-purpose flour with 1 cup of water. Add one-half teaspoon of salt, if desired. 3. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon for about a minute, until the flour is incorporated and the dough is elastic. Add more flour if needed; the dough should be a little sticky.

A favorite formula among French chefs for obtaining moist, succulent fish happens to be an easy, low-fat cooking method. It requires only five ingredients besides the fish: fish stock, wine, shallots, salt and pepper. The fish and seasonings are placed into a baking dish, covered and baked in a hot oven. You don't even have to turn the fish over during cooking. Today, this classic recipe can be prepared quickly because you can buy frozen fish stock at fish markets and fine supermarkets.

Itch itch, scratch scratch. Snore snore. A lot of us don't need a weatherman - or a humidity readout on our smarter thermostat - to know when our house is suffering those wintertime, dried out, can't-get-no-sleep blues. Brought on by the low humidity output of a forced air heating system, and made worse by tightly sealing windows and doors, ultra-dry winter air is bad for plants, furniture and musical instruments and worst for you and me. Unless you relish having skin so dry that it could crack like parchment paper.

This is the sixth in a series on healthy cooking classes at St. Martin De Porres School in North Philadelphia. Maliyah Gregg was first to arrive and was hoping for a private lesson: "If I'm the only one, do I get to do everything myself?" she asked. Moments later the rest of the troops showed up and her face fell. Not only did Hope Wescott, Jayla Reeves, and Kayla Reid come, but also Chamya Davis, 11, a new student. Mariah Bey did not. She was absent last week too, and it turns out her family moved out of the area because of an emergency.
