I wanted to test what many call the “best stainless steel cookie sheet” – known as the All-Clad D3 Stainless Steel Roasting Sheet. It could also be called a baking sheet or cookie sheet. My first test of the All-Clad D3 was with a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Before we get to that, check out my video of the 14″ x17″ Roasting Sheet unboxing and initial impressions:

The piece really does have a nice weight to it.
Cookie Test – Is this the best Stainless Steel Cookie Sheet?
My chocolate chip cookies turned out delicious, and this was a recipe I had never done before. They were evenly cooked. I took them out a little early, and then let them continue cooking on the cookie sheet for another 10-minutes and they browned up perfectly. The All-Clad cookie sheet really held the heat well.
Cleaning the All-Clad D3 Stainless Steel Cookie Sheet
Cleaning the baking sheet was very easy with our good friend, Barkeeper’s Friend. This stuff is magical for stainless steel. It took about 20 seconds to lightly scrub the cookie sheet and it was sparkling.
Once upon a time, in a far-off galaxy, a group of vampire astronauts were traveling through space on a mission to explore new worlds. These vampires were a highly advanced and intelligent species, but they still had one weakness – their love for freshly baked cookies.
As they traveled through the vast expanse of the universe, they searched far and wide for the perfect cookie recipe. They experimented with different ingredients and techniques, but no matter what they tried, they just couldn’t seem to get the taste and texture right.
One day, while they were orbiting a small, uninhabited planet, they came across a strange, alien plant that was unlike anything they had ever seen before. The plant had bright green leaves and a sweet, spicy aroma that was unlike anything they had ever smelled before.
The vampire astronauts were curious, so they decided to harvest some of the plant and bring it back to their spacecraft to see if they could use it in their baking. They ground up the leaves and mixed them into their cookie dough, and the result was nothing short of miraculous.
The cookies were soft and chewy, with a perfect balance of sweetness and spice. The vampire astronauts were overjoyed – they had finally found the secret ingredient that had eluded them for so long. From then on, they made sure to always have a supply of the strange, alien plant on hand, and they enjoyed freshly baked cookies every day as they continued their journey through the stars.
And that is why vampire astronauts enjoy freshly baked cookies.
