Invest in lighter-colored cookie sheets. If sheets are too dark, cookies may overbrown. 3. Select sheets with a dull finish so cookie bottoms brown more evenly. 4. Use shiny sheets for cookies that should not brown on bottoms, such as shortbread. 5. Use nonstick cookie sheets if you prefer to skip the greasing step. However, the dough may not spread as much, resulting in thicker cookies with smooth bottoms.
