My friend Rachel, from Maybe Matilda, did crack me up by saying, “Your baked goods are the Victoria’s Secret models of the culinary world. Mine are the Danny DeVito’s”.
I think part of the reason why my cookies come out looking like the Victoria’s Secret models of the culinary world is because of my AirBake cookie sheets. I love them so much I could marry them. The mega size cookie sheet is my favorite because you can fit like 100 cookies on it. Not really, but it seems like 100.
I should also add that I use parchment paper with the AirBake cookie sheets. Why the parchment paper? Because I’m super lazy, and I don’t want to have to hand wash the baking sheets when I’m done.
Another tip in case you want to know: I don’t trust the time on recipes. I undercut the time by 2-3 minutes, check on the cookies when the timer beeps, and I add 1-2 minutes if they don’t look done yet. I’ll keep doing this until they look right. So, basically, I’m a slave to my oven when I bake. I also know my oven runs a little hot, so I bake everything at 340-345°. I don’t know if that makes a huge difference, but it’s what I do.

Are your baked goods Victoria’s Secret models or Danny DeVito’s?
Have you tried AirBake cookie sheets?
Any cookie baking tips for the rest of us?
