Lacey Susan’s from Rose’s Cookie Book. I had a failure yesterday because I did not follow Rose’s instructions. Rose says to use a non-stick cookie sheet or Aluminum foil. I used my old warped but very practical aluminum insulated cookie sheets. I baked the first batch until they were very golden. I even turned the cookie sheet around when the rear cookies started to turn golden before the front row. After they were out of the oven, after two minutes, I could see they were sticking. All we could do was scrape them off in gooey lumps. But we all had fun because they tasted warm and good.
I thought the trouble must be that I didn’t let them get brown enough, so I let the second batch get very brown. This made it worse, they were very difficult to even scrape off into a lump for a bite. And I feared I had ruined the cookie sheet, but the brown carmel disolved in warm water and lots of elbow oil.
Ah - we live and learn. I like Rose because she explains things to novices like me, but I just did not notice that non-stick cookie sheet part.
Next weekend, I may try baking them on my non-stick pancake grill!
