FEATURED RECIPE OF THE WEEK
HELPFUL COOKIE BAKING TIPS
Allow ingredients like butter and eggs to come to room temperature before using.
Measure ingredients carefully; when baking, exact amounts make a difference.
Do not over mix cookie dough as it will result in a tough product.
Use bright, shiny aluminum cookie sheets; rather than dark ones, to prevent over-browning.
Bake cookies on the middle rack of the oven or use your convection option if you have one.
You can adjust baking times to achieve the cookie texture you prefer. A little less time produces a chewier cookie, a little more time makes them crispy.
Use parchment paper for stick-free baking and easy clean-up.
Cookies will continue to bake after they are removed from the oven, so be sure to transfer cookies carefully to a wire rack to cool.
Most cookie recipes call for all-purpose flour. Do not sift unless specifically called for in the recipe.
If you are making bar cookies, use the pan size indicated in the recipe or cooking time will be off.
If decorating your cookies, allow to completely cool before decorating.
Cookies freeze well and defrost fast. So double your recipe and freeze some for future snacking.
