The sheet to beat.

Every cookie should dream of calling Nordic Ware¡¯s pure aluminum baking sheet home. Why are we so psyched on a baking sheet? The aluminum¡¯s ability to conduct heat kicks every other material to the curb, and means your baked goods (like these nutty Brutti Ma Buoni) will rise and bake evenly; it will never rust; and the reinforced steel rim prevents warping, so it¡¯ll still look and work like new, even after many batches of cookies.

Choose from a quarter sheet, a jelly roll pan, a half sheet (likely the size you¡¯re most used to seeing), or a big sheet, which has 35% more surface area than a half sheet to fit another dozen cookies but still fits most standard ovens. The quarter sheets, half sheets, and jelly roll pans come in sets of 2¡ªyou¡¯ll want plenty of these around for roasting brussel sprouts, baking meatballs, and churning out dozens of scones.
