Best cookie Sheets are large orders?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I currently use my stones (which I love!), but you can't fit many cookies on them. I have a large order for cookies for an August wedding (200 cookies) and it will take me all day to cook them on my stones.
Can you tell me what you think are the best cookie sheets to use?
Thanks!

I have no idea about brands of pans, but whatever you use, use parchment paper.

Indydebi- since you obviously use parchment, what is the function besides not sticking? I don't use it but I am sure I should!

Oh my, NO scrubbing those pans that is worth the cost in itself!! at least for me. They just need wiped down w/soapy water, but no trying to scrap stuff off of them.

well, I had this all typed once and the internet went down! icon_cry.gif

leily is right ... the reduced clean up time is WAY worth it! Parchment can also be wiped down with a wet paper towel and re-used, or flip it over and use the backside. Depending on the cookie, I can use the same parchment 3-4 times.

When I was a kid, I always marveled at how perfectly round and what pretty bottoms the bakery cookies had. How come the ones mom made didn't look pretty like that? (well, that's a whole 'nuther thread in the Lounge area....!)

Anyway, many decades later, I found out: cookies scoops and parchment paper.

The non-sticking is not just during the taking-them-off-the-tray part. It's also a benefit during the baking process. When the dough doesn't stick to the baking sheet, it can spread easily and evenly to ensure even and consistent baking ... making for a perfect and pretty cookie.

Whatever the magic is that they add to the baking process, it is SO worth it!!

I was using Baker's Secret, but I didn't like having the edges (maybe they make them edge-less?) and my sister got me 2 of Wilton's airbake pans, so now that's all I use, sans parchment because the cookies don't brown on parchment and I can't tell when they are done! icon_smile.gif

Oh my, cookie scoops/dishers are oh so much fun to use! I made cake truffles today and was dreaming of having a scoop in the right size (used a measuring tablespoon, but think a trip to GFS is in order!).

Oh, Michelle, Michelle, Michelle. What AM i going to do with you?

Cookies are done when you can smell 'em! Or when they pass the finger-poke test: Poke the sides of the cookie with your finger and if it's JUST starting to feel firm, they are done.

Be careful or I'll turn you into one of those annoying "until it looks right" cooks!! icon_biggrin.gif

LOL! Indy, that's why I have my mom do most of my baking. I make the dough, taught her to roll on dowels to make the dough even, blah, blah, blah...and they come out perfect, but when I do the same thing, they just aren't as good! She takes them out when the timer is done, I say they don't look done yet, but then they are too done by the time I get them off the sheet. Maybe I should listen to my mom, my real mom and my "cake mom!"

I did just pick up a pack of parchment at GFS and have been using it for everything but lining my cookie sheets. LOL!

If you mean the 18x26 sheets of parchment, man, those things have a LOT of uses! They are great for rolling out cookie dough and for lining the pans when putting dough in the freezer. I lay some on my counters (especially under and around the mixer) and it really helps with clean up! Just wad up the parchment papers and throw them away, with a quick wipe down of the counter top.

And just remember that sage, old advice: "mama knows!" icon_biggrin.gif

OMG that's so funny....my mom yells at me all the time because i don't use a timer. "how do you know when the cookies are done?" you can smell 'em!! she thinks i'm nuts!! and i touch the top of the cookie. you can just feel it. i don't know how to explain it...i just know.
i think i'll call mom right now and tell her i'm not crazy...well, i am but it's not because i smell my cookies, so there!!

heck the only thing I use my timer at home for is to let my granddaughter know when her "time out" is over! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

When I say "when I smell them" folks are confused because they walk into my house or shop and they smell them immediately. They just don't realize that I'm in it all day long and i"m just so used to it and can't smell them anymore. So when I DO smell them, that's the flag! thumbs_up.gif

I'm laughing so hard, but have to do it very quietly, you are all so funny! I live with a health inspector so keep your voices down! But just between you and me, I can tell the cookies are done by the smell, too. Well...got to go hide that food thermometer again before he comes back into the kitchen and makes me use it!!!
