Do You Burn Cookies When You Bake

Sharing is caring!

When you bake cookies, do you always burn them?

Maybe the first batch comes out great, but then each batch after that burns before the nine minute cook-time is up?

Here is a tip.

Let your cookie sheet cool in between each batch.

Simple, right?

Think about it. If you place a new batch of cookies on the already hot cookie sheet and toss it back in the oven, the bottoms of the cookies are cooking faster because they are getting a head start. This can result in over done cookies.

Makes sense, right?


  1. I’m also a big fan of baking cookies using parchment paper. I’m not sure if that helps retard burning but it’s a huge help for me. 🙂

    Thanks for the tip, I have always wondered if you should let the sheets cool between batches. I usually have two sheets going, but only bake one at a time so the other cools in between. I too am a huge fan of parchment paper!

  3. Hi Crystal,
    That is just too simple!! But it does make perfect sense. I usually double or triple the recipe for most cookies so that I can pass them out, so I rotate two half sheets. That has saved me from that problem. But now I know what to tell my daughter, she thinks her oven needs to be checked for temperature control.

    1. Amazing how simple and practical, right?
      Do share with your daughter! 🙂
      Thanks for reading.

  4. The baking stones from Pampered chef are absolutely amazing too. They make awesome cookies. I don’t think I could live without mine.

  5. That is a great idea. Thanks for sharing. I need to get some parchment paper too. I tried wax paper and they stuck to it.
