As the owner of a couple of dozen 2 inch baking rings, I though a lot about Greenspan's jammers. I though, if one could cook shortbread cookies in individual rings, could you cook other cookies that way?
My personal cookie preference is chewy, neat cookies. I was never one for those cookies that spread out on the cookie sheet leaving crispy edges. I hate it when baking cookies run into each other. I was that kid who wouldn't eat if the food touched each other!
My "go to" cookie is a peanut butter, chocolate chunk. When a visiting friend asked if I would make them, I thought it would be a good time to experiment. I had tried before with good results, so I thought I would give the rings a try.
I have two dozen 2 inch rings. I set them on a cookie sheet lined with a silpat. Filled the rings and baked. The cookies were perfect little 2 inch, fat, soft cookies. I have toyed with idea of getting another dozen of the little rings and filling the tray. I don't know if being that closely aligned would change the baking time, but it would be nice to bake an entire recipe of cookies all at once. Right now, however, 24 at a time is fine.
