Now I`m just a novice in the kitchen. And when I say novice, I`m being nice. I don`t ever REALLY know what I`m doing, just mix things together, see what happens. It`s like an experiment.
This is why I like baking/cooking. It's like an art and a science in one. So when I went to bake these cookies, I didn't know whether I should make them on parchment paper, or on a straight on a baking sheet. (Actually, this is what goes through my head every time I make cookies)

So I did both. You know. As an experiment. The results?
Well they both turned out pretty good. You could barely tell the difference, except for the bottoms of the ones made on the parchment paper looked better. But they both tasted the same.
So the conclusion of my experiment: it doesn't make too much of a difference. Parchment paper does make less of a mess. So if I were making something really messy, I would opt for the parchment paper.
So this was my first time making snickerdoodles. I've never heard of them before, but making them was very fun. And it also made a LOT of cookies. Which made me a LOT of happy.
