I made cookies from scratch for the first time last night. I am no baker, but once in a while I enjoy a cookie and the idea that I could basically customize it to anything I like is enough to give it a go. I use some pretty decent air insulated aluminum cookie sheets, but regardless of whether it is a store bought mix, or in the case last night from scratch, my cookies tend to flatten out around the edges.
Are the shapes you see in store bought cookies not realistic in a home oven or is there something I'm doing wrong? I cooked these at 375.
