Unput

verb; derivation
To take out of a specified position. My cousin needed a way to say that he wanted to take out the cookies from the oven, and the first phrase that came to his mind was unput. Logically, this makes sense. If you put something somewhere, you should be able to “unput” it. However, this nonce word sounds odd to speakers of modern English, and will thus probably never come to be in popular use.
 
You need to unput the cookies from the oven.
Etymology : unput. un- + put
