Exactly! The top just looks done and I'm feeling proud until they come off the pan black :(

Have you had your stove checked maybe its hotter than it's telling you.

You can just cook them 5 minutes shorter than the recommended time but you probably tried that.

How do you prepare your pans?  Spray, parchment, foil, nothing?  I used to use cooking spray, but I still ended up with cookies that were darker or burned on the bottom.  Once I started using parchment or pan-lining paper (parchment side up), I no longer had that problem.

I usually put nothing.

Use parchment paper.

You can also double the cookie sheets to create an air-bake effect.

The hot air of the oven isn't directly heating the bottom of the pan.  I don't know all the physics of it, but I know that there are special air-bake pans that have a double layered bottom and things don't burn.  You can achieve the same effect by doubling your pans.

I always use parchment paper (mostly because I'm a lazy cookie pan cleaner).  How dark is your cookie sheet?  A dark cookie sheet will cook the bottoms of your cookies faster than the top.
