bake two cookie trays at the same time - Page 2

post #16 of 24
my top shelf bakes faster. different ovens do different things, so if you want to get technical, get an oven thermometer, and check the different areas of your oven.

My hot spot in my oven is the top left corner. So I when I switch the trays from top to bottom half way through I also give the a half turn too.

IndyDebi - that is sheer brilliance! Even though I bake in a very high end convection home oven, I still have to rotate my trays... I love your idea and will try it next time. Thanks!

I am the oldest of 6 kids and we did the same thing. I've always told my kids that growing up poor in a large family was the best thing that ever happened to me .... I learned a lot of things that my "more financially secure" friends never had to deal with or learn to work around. thumbs_up.gif


Ha! Oldest of seven here, and I couldn't agree more! We are a very Italian family, especially in the kitchen, and have never eaten "American" sized portions (read: healthy sized icon_lol.gif ) It took the better part of my first year of marriage before I learned how to cook for two (or anything less than 6, for that matter). I mean, really, who cooks less than a pound of pasta at a time! I also second the "poor in a large family" part. It's amazing the ingenuity that can come from having jack squat! icon_wink.gif

Same here! When I first got married, I made TWO boxes of Kraft Mac-n-Cheese for the two of us! I had no idea how to deal with or cook leftovers because we never had leftovers when I was growing up! I was totally confused about all of the "eating turkey for DAYS after Thanksgiving" stories because our turkey was cleaned to the dried-in-the-desert bone at dinner. I never had a leftover turkey sandwich until after I was married! icon_lol.gif

We did have leftovers at our house (proves how much my mom would (over)cook for an average dinner!) and I was notorious for cleaning out the fridge. To this day I have a hard time figuring out what to eat for lunch without leftovers in the fridge! I hate cold cut sandwiches! As for thanksgiving turkey, well, my mom had a tendency to give us a "dry as the desert" bird FOR the meal instead of AFTER it! Plus with 8,000 side dishes it wasn't hard to pass up a dry turkey. Now, with my sister graduated from culinary school and my own recently-acquired food "street smarts" we finally have a bird worth eating! icon_biggrin.gif

well, i never heard of not filling the oven up until the internet. I was always taught that if you are going to turn it on, you fill it as much as possible.

Rotate the cookies you should be fine unless there is something wrong with your oven.

I am the youngest of 13 icon_smile.gif I agree, the thought of less than a full oven does not exist in my mind. I follow the same procedure that Debi does-no problems! Our "cookie jar" was an empty metal tin that cherries came in (20#)!!
When I worked as a cook-the bottoms of the ovens were lined with foil for ease of clean-up. Found out from a repair man that this is NOT the thing to do as it will throw off the thermostat in the oven!

oooh, thanks for that advice. I often put foil on the bottom to catch spills and stuff (i don't usually do that when baking cookies though).
