Cookie baking tips

  • Butter or a fat component is present in the majority of cookie recipes. The butter should be soft but not cold, almost room temperature
  • The sugar isn't grainy, so the butter and sugar are mixed to make a smooth, fluffy mixture
  • Beat in each egg separately
  • For the job, use appropriate measuring cups. Liquid measuring cups are larger than the amount needed, are easy to read with lines for visual verification of the amount of liquid, and have a spout for pouring. The exact amount of dry measuring cups is supposed to be filled to the top
  • Measure your flour thoroughly. Don't scoop the flour out of the container. It will pack too much into the cup. Use a spoon to lightly sift the flour into the measuring cup and then carefully level the excess with the edge of a knife
  • To prevent the cookies from spreading too far, Line metal baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats is best. Or, use a baking stone to get evenly baked cookies every time
