Good idea. I'd be sure to leave the thermometer for a while after the oven indicates it's up to temp and monitor the fluctuations.

Check your oven instruction manual. Some ovens have a means of adjusting the temps so it really is 350 when the oven says it is.

Those look amazing Ohio, how did they taste?
I would agree with DL, prior to getting a stand mixer,
I did the same thing, cream the sugar and butter
with the hand mixer and then switch to a very stout wooden spoon
(I love my Kitchen Aid)

My wife said she really wants me to make more. And that's saying something, because she brings up my first time baking brownies (8 years ago) - when we had no eggs, but I decided to try to make it anyway. So she tells everyone of the crusty pudding dish I made for her when she was pregnant with our oldest.

ya know, some Dollar Stores offer cooling racks, not the best, but if you're just starting out and don't want invest too much in baking, what the heck, right? I think you get 2 or 3 for a buck.

You live in a metropolitan area. Find a restaurant supply store. The best prices on stuff you'll need.

I found stuff actually at Dollar Tree stores.
Cheap stuff, but like I said, if you don't
know whether or not you're going to do
it very often...

I've done fairly well with the chocolate chip land o lakes recipe. But the sugar cookies turn out fliffy. I like them crispy on the outside and chewy on the onside. Flat. Not like a muffin top.

Maybe this will help. The author tests how different ingredients have different effects: http://time.com/3179770/the-science-...s-cookie-ever/
