Greased papers

I quite enjoy a bit of baking of an afternoon, both half- and edible genres.

If you've ever baked a cake or souffle, you'll know that the recipe often suggests using the wrapping from a block of butter, and running this paper on the inside of your tin or ramekin.

What if you don't have enough butter to hand to provide the wrappers?

Greased papers come in a pack and are found next to the grease-proof paper in your grocery store. Each feuille is separated by a sliver of plastic to ensure that each is perfectly buttered only on one side.

       yeah but the problem is when you runny out of butter.   

       funny, my problem was always not having enough of the wrapping to tear off and still having enough to protect the rest of the butter.   

       jon, if you want to be a proper baker, you should always, repeat always, have enough butter.

       pop round and borrow some anytime you like.

       if I borrow yours [po], the butter won't have any wrapping and then we're up the swanny. I always have enough butter, just not enough wrappings.

       you said you were short of butter or shortening...   

       I'm confused but you are welcome to the contents of my fridge.   

       not the beer <slap>

       If you're at the store, and have the thought to get pre-greased sheets of paper, because you might be oot of butter, why not just get some butter???

       My ramekin is plenty greasy, thank you.

       Feuille for thought.   

       "Each feuille is separated by a sliver of plastic to ensure that each is perfectly buttered only on one side." Why not just stick to pieces butter side together? Save on plastic(you could give the plastic to toy companies!), and chances are you would use more than one anyways.

       It migth be easier to simply take your oil, or butter and rub it down on a regular sheet of wax, or even printer paper.

       I've always found that (shock) grease-proof paper is ideal for the purpose you outline, given that it's intended for food use, is available from food type retailers, and well, can be used for wiping butter onto things.
