I received an Heirloom Cookie Sheet to try out with my Heirloom Chocolate Chip Cookies.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions are my own.

Ruth Wakefield invented the Chocolate Chip Cookie in 1938.  Her version of the chocolate chip cookie is the original, but the one I remember growing up is the version from the Betty Crocker 1969 cookbook.  My mom received that cookbook from her mom as a wedding present and it’s been a special heirloom in our family since.  I never really had the chance to know my mom’s mom very well since she past when I was just 2, but her memory lives on through stories, cookbooks, and beloved Heirloom Recipes like these Heirloom Chocolate Chip Cookies!  They are certainly my favorites!!!

Betty Crocker 1969 Cookbook Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe! This  is a picture of my mom’s Betty Crocker cookbook which is usually opened to page 136 of course!  We used many recipes out of this cookbook, but the Chocolate Chip cookie recipe was the most used.  It’s amazing how one page out of a book can remind me of a lifetime of memories!  Recently I was thinking of this recipe and had my mom send me this pic so I could make a batch of cookies with the girls and test out my new Heirloom Cookie Sheet!

Heirloom Cookie Sheet

Have you heard of Heirloom cookie sheets before?  I first saw them on Google + and was instantly interested in them.  What makes these different?  Cookies bake extremely evenly and brown without burning.  They are made of high quality, untreated, stainless steel.  They are Dishwasher safe.  Made of Ultra-sturdy and rust-resistant (you’ll never need to buy another cookie sheet).  All sheets are Made in the USA and backed with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Does your cookie sheet stand up to that?  We put the Heirloom Cookie Sheet to the test and here are our results:

My girls and I made our Heirloom Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe together.  I made the dough exactly as the directions stated.

We placed the raw dough on the Heirloom Cookie Sheet and the girls carefully watched as the cookies baked!  They were so cute watching the cookies! 🙂

Once the cookies started to smell amazing and the tops were a golden brown we took them out.  I let them cool for a minute then slipped a slatted spatula underneath to take one off.  It was SO easy!  The cookie did not stick at all.

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Underside

 I immediately turned the cookie over and inspected the underside.  I don’t think a cookie could get any better than this.  The underside was perfectly golden brown.  It was the exact same color as the tops.  The Heirloom Cookie Sheet out-performed every cookie sheet I have owned to date and that is no exaggeration.  We made 3 dozen of these cookies and they all turned out great!

 The Chocolate Chip Cookies were exactly how I remember them growing up.  Chewy in the middle and crunchy on the outside.  Just perfect in my opinion!
