You might need to use a different tray, or the metal wired shelf. That would allow the heat to be more consistent when cooking the cookie. (The tray is effectively shielding the bottom of the cookie, whilst the top is getting cooked as you'd expect.)

Thanks Kwa - cooking mesh really helps to let the heat get to the underside of the food - it's great with things like crumbed chicken, lightly dusted fish, chips and pizza. I'm not much of a baker so I haven't tried it on anything else.
It's a common problem when the heat comes from the top. When baking it is best to use the top rack with the extender in place and to preheat the oven. Reduce the heat and cook for a bit longer too.
The heat doesn't circulate well under the bottom rack and things can take a long time to cook especially when there is more food on the top rack.
Baking is the one area people find hardest to get right so you're not alone.
Have a good read around previous posts when you have time, they will help you get to grips with your new HO.
