Do you grease a nonstick cookie sheet?

Some recipes don't call for a greased pan or sheet because there's enough fat in the crust or batter to keep the cookies or bars from sticking to the pan. If you grease the cookie sheet when the recipe calls for an ungreased sheet, your cookies could spread too much and turn out thin or flat.

Furthermore, do you have to grease a nonstick pan for baking?

Nonstick cookware is supposed to do this on its own, but it's not foolproof. Recipes recommend that you either grease your pans with butter or cooking spray/oil, or grease your pans and give them a coating of flour.

Additionally, what does it mean to grease a cookie sheet? Unless the recipe tells you to grease the cookie sheet, resist the impulse. The extra grease causes cookie dough (which already contains a lot of fat) to spread. If you're concerned about cookies sticking, line the cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone non-stick mat.

Keeping this in view, do I need to grease a cookie sheet?

Those who cook with silicone baking liners or parchment paper, for example, do not need to grease their cookie sheets, because the food never comes into contact with a surface it can adhere to. Use unsalted butter, vegetable shortening or cooking spray to grease the bottom of the cookie sheet.
