Every kitchen needs a good cookie sheet and there's no better time than now to buy a new one for your baking needs. All of the major department and discount stores have huge sales going on for kitchen gadgets and gear, so there's really know excuse, especially if you plan on making batches of your favorite cookies for family and friends.
But what type of cookie sheet should you buy? In my opinion, you'll probably need two.
The first type of cookie sheet to look for is called an insulated cookie sheet. An added pocket of air between the top and bottom layer makes things cook slower, and at a lower temperature which is perfect for more delicate cookies. Think Spritzs, shortbreads and other buttery creations.
The second type is a good old fashioned, basic aluminum cookie sheet. It's durable and affordable and great for cookie where you're looking for crispy edges and brown bottoms. Chocolate chip, oatmeal, molasses and sugar cookies all bake wonderfully on these sheets.
Moms, how many cookie sheets do you have in your kitchen, and what kind of cookies do you bake on each?
