Cookie Baking Tips
Before jumping right into the cookie recipes, let’s review a few important cookie baking tips to ensure you have perfect cookies every time.
- Use Fresh Ingredients. While this may sound like a no-brainer, when was the last time you checked the expiration date on your baking soda? Can’t remember? If it was last Christmas, then you may need to get a new box. Check the date on those eggs as well. A trip to the grocery store may be in order before starting your holiday cookie baking.
- Room Temperature. Does your recipe call for softened butter? Then be sure the butter is room temperature and soft but not close to melting. This is very important to get the right texture of the batter and the cookies. Softened butter allows more air in the batter which results in more fluffy cookies. However, if the butter is almost melted, then it will have the opposite effect. Take the eggs out when you take out the butter as well. This will result in the best fluffy texture of the cookies. This requires a little bit of planning but will be well worth it.
- Refrigerate The Cookie Dough. Some recipes call for refrigerating the cookie dough before baking. If your recipes does, don’t skip that step. Why? Because refrigerating the cookie dough before baking prevents the cookies from spreading too much. The refrigeration allows for the cookie to have the perfect shape and texture. If you skip the step, you may have extra thin, crunchy cookies.
- Prevent Cookies From Sticking. To prevent cookies from sticking to the cookie sheet, use either parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. While some cookies may still stick a little to the parchment paper, you won’t have that problem with the silicon baking mat. Cookies should slide right off.
