s 007Anyone who is a snicker doodle fan needs to try this recipe!s 003I tried this recipe from Lovin’ from the Oven and I just had to share! Not only are they amazing cookies but I want to share a review on the OXO cookie sheet– no I am not being paid for this and yes you need to go buy one of these pans! s 004

I have just a regular cookie pan that my mom has always used and I have always used. We bought our house last year in November and did our annual cookie baking in my new kitchen…every single cookie seemed to be FLAT! I did lots of chocolate chip cookie recipe research and finally was able to produce a cookie out of my oven without it failing flat as a pancake-but then I got this pan! The baking difference is phenomenal! The first batch on my old pan turned out flat as pancakes and slightly underdone (like any other cookie I put in my oven) and this second batch on this OXO pan turned out like little gems! Perfect on the outside-puffy and just the right kind of chewy in the inside. Not only does it bake perfectly but I can fit almost 2 dozen cookies on one baking sheet!
