How many baking sheets/cookie pans do you have? If you answered one, then you may want to make your life easier by investing in a second one. When making cookies, a quick time-saving tip is to use two pans. While the first pan is in the oven, you can place the dough on the second pan. When the first pan comes out of the oven, pop the second pan in! While the second pan is baking, allow the first pan to cool — run it under cold water if necessary — and then portion out the cookies. Keep this up until you're finished! This way there's always something in the oven and your total baking time decreases!
