@Julia M. Usher Thank you! I think I agree with what you say about the cookie with non browning being pasty and I do not like that taste.
I have tried other cakes and cupcakes in the same oven and they too are burning at the bottom, so I am thinking this might be something to do with the placement of my trays. I will also implement your idea of using another thermometer to check the oven temperature. I saw you using Silicone mats in your videos and will make sure to use them going forward when I bake.
Please consider having the oven checked. It could be a simple fix.
