Everyone with passion in making cookies dream their every goodie to come out from the oven in its ideal brown and chewy delicious taste.

Nearly everyone find it convenient to buy a roll of cookie dough that they can simply slice and stick in the oven and get cookies as fast as 20 minutes. However, if you are among those who prefer taking the time to make their own cookie dough from their own mixture and mind's eye, it is only essential to know everything about the cookie you are preparing and the particular cookie sheets that you are going to use. A cookie sheet may sound very constant, but with the many different types of cookie sheets available, believe it or not, they all render different results.
Insulated Non-stick Cookie Sheet
This cookie sheet is made to be non-stick. Although insulated sheets are categorized as the expensive type, these cookie sheets have a propensity to resist scratches, chipping, and peeling. They are of high quality with basically two sheets of metal aluminum that have been connected together creating a small pocket of air that cannot escape. The heat coming from the oven bakes the cookies on top, while the direct heat in a cookie sheet bakes the cookies from the bottom. Although cookie sheets can get too hot that possibly yields overly browned and crispy bottoms, the air inside of the pocket between the layers heats up to the same temperature as the oven, maintaining a constant heat resulting in the smooth and evenly baked cookies.
Aluminum Cookie Sheets
Aluminum cookie sheets are the most popular and commonly used. These sheets are made of a light metal and are a good conductor of heat, and since aluminum material conducts heat well, it usually produces evenly browned and crisped baked cookies. Even though thin aluminum cookie sheets can twist and bend in the oven, most people prefer aluminum cookie sheets because it is inexpensive, reasonably sturdy and does not rust even when soaked in water for an extensive period of time.
Non-Stick Cookie Sheets
This cookie sheet type probably is the new favorite in the baking world today. Non-stick cookie sheets offer a surface coating that makes them easy to clean. They are sensibly practical as it eliminates the need to butter the sheet before cooking. One thing to keep in mind when buying a non-stick cookie sheet it that the darker the surface of the sheet, the quicker the cookies will brown. Therefore, it is important to read the instructions that come with the cookie sheet to find out about the right oven temperature that suits the kind of cookie sheet you are using.
In conclusion, cookie sheets are usually made of a number of different types of materials, or even a combination of materials. Each cookie sheet can render different effects for one cookie recipe. If you use a darker cookie sheet, your cookies will brown faster because a dark cookie sheets absorb heat more readily which quickly transfers the heat directly to the cookies. If you’re using aluminum cookie sheets, your cookies will cook good as aluminum is a good conductor of heat but the goodies will not brown. If you really like to brown your cookies, an insulated cookie sheet will ensure you evenly baked cookies regardless of how they are arranged on the sheet.
