Sherrine....your answer is almost correct. I did not forget to set the timer, I just set it for twenty two minutes instead of twelve as the numbers one and two are so close together on the stove panel. I did this twice because I am a slow learner. The answer is 11 cookies were fit for consumption. I even had to throw away the cookie sheet as it looked like it had been in a barn fire. Sweet.
Statgeek reminded me of why my smoke alarm didn't go off as my cookies baked into charred cinders...I pulled out the battery the last time I backed a chicken with saran wrap instead of aluminum foil and forgot to put it back in...thanks Stat for the reminder!
