When you’re making multiple batches of treats, it’s tempting to reuse the sheets while they’re still hot from the oven. But raw dough on a warm pan will produce unevenly baked cookies that are thin and overly browned around the edges. Rather than waiting 4 to 5 minutes for the temperature of the sheets to drop, try this quick fix: Run the underside of the hot pan under cold water until it’s cool. That way, you won’t need to wipe it dry.
