Full Answer

Wax paper has a thin wax coating on either side, so it is moisture-resistant and does not stick. It is great for covering countertops. However, wax paper is not heat-resistant and should not be used in the oven.

Another possible option for lining baking sheets is a Silpat baking mat. It is made from flexible, heat-resistant silicon. They are much more expensive than either parchment paper or wax paper, but they can be reused and last for years.
