Thanks Cookie Man! I've got a cookie sheet with the edges already, so I might have to invest in silpat for next time! Also, I'll need to be more patient. With only one cookie sheet, I'm always eager to get the next batch in. I'll have to get another one so I can alternate cooling/baking. Thanks!

P.S. I've only ever made chocolate chip cookies before, and have that recipe down to perfection, so it was a bit traumatic half-failing in this endeavor hehe. But I feel better prepared for my next attempt, now!

Hi, April! Silpats/silicone mats really are excellent for cookie baking. I have two Silpats and two half-sheet baking pans. I can fit 12 cookies on each pan, and I alternate them so that while one is in the oven, the other is "on deck." And "rested" cookies really do just pop off of a just grasp the cookies by the edge, give them a slight twist, and can lift them off cleanly. No spatula required.

And, best of all, you don't have to wash the sheet pan!


I owned a cookie business for a few years and NEVER bake without parchment paper on the cookie sheets for two reasons, 1. They won't stick no matter what and 2. you can remove them from the cookie sheet right away by sliding the parchment right off the edge on to the cooling rack. That way if you want a chewy cookie, it won't continue to bake on the sheet and will cool to a nice chewy-ness.

LOVE your recipes especially the Hotter Chocolate Cookies!!!!! Keep them coming!!

Hi, Tracey. Cool tip on using the parchment paper to slide cookies from the cookie sheet to the cooling rack. Very neat. And I'm so glad you like my Hotter Chocolate cookies. They really are cool (pardon the pun).
