Ann's Drop Cookies

Next recipe card, Ann's Drop Cookies. How could I resist? If we have our names in common, and the corner of the card reads "extra good" so they must be good. Right?
Today is a snow day, so I had two helpers assisting with the crisscross patterns.

One helper had a pretty nice apron, I don't think I ever showed you.

And the baking experiment begins. These cookies have two sticks on butter in them. Oh, yes, TWO sticks.

Here is pan #1. 350 degrees, 10 min, no parchment paper. Result: very flat and lost shape.....and I put too many cookies on the pan.

Pan #2. Baked at 350 degrees with parchment paper for 12 min. Result: kept shape much better and not as flat.

Pan #3. Baked at convection bake at 350 degrees (which my oven automatically reduces down to 325) for 9 min. Result: cookies are nice like pan #2 but not as evenly baked.

So, I would say Pan #2 wins!
Overall, these cookies are okay. They are good (but a lot of calories!) and would make and excellent cookie to serve with coffee. They remind me of a spritz cookie recipe I have and love.

The details.

1 1/2 cups sugar
