Types Of Cookie Dough Sheets
Anybody who takes the time to make cookies from scratch obviously wants the cookies to come out perfectly and taste delicious. Mixing ingredients is almost unheard of these days with just about everything being available in pre-mixed or pre-made packages.
Most people simply buy a roll of cookie dough, slice it, and stick it in the oven for 15-18 minutes. However, for people who still take the time to make their own cookie dough, it’s important to know the differences between all the types of cookie dough sheets available in stores today.
- Insulated Non-stick Cookie Sheet – Most insulated cookie sheets are made to be non-stick, and because insulated sheets are sometimes on the more expensive side, they tend to resist scratches, chipping, and peeling. Insulated cookie dough sheets are very reliable for evenly baked cookies and easy to clean because of their non-stick surfaces.
Because the air inside the sheet heats to the temperature of the oven, it allows all the cookies on the sheet to cook and brown at the same rate. The evenly heated air prevents the cookie sheet from being hotter in certain spots, which is a common occurrence with regular cookie sheets.
- Aluminum Cookie Sheets – Aluminum cookie sheets are very commonly used. Aluminum conducts heat well which is why cookie sheets made of this material usually produce an evenly baked cookie. The only down side to aluminum is that it sometimes prevents cookies from reaching the perfect shade of brown.
- Non-Stick Cookie Sheets – Non-stick cookie sheets have a surface coating that makes them easy to clean, yet they are still able to produce delicious cookies. Keep in mind that the darker the non-stick surface, the quicker the cookies will brown.
Therefore, it’s important to read the instructions that come with the cookie dough sheet to find out if the manufacturer recommends that the oven’s cooking temperature be lowered to compensate. It may be necessary to lower the temperature of the oven by about 25 degrees.
