Tips For Better Cookies

  1.  Make sure that your ingredients are at room temperature.
  2. Don’t forget to preheat your oven to the temperature stated in the recipe.
  3. I like to use large mixing bowls – it cuts down on the splatter.
  4. Heavy aluminum baking sheets work best.  They seem to produce evenly browned cookies.
  5. I like to use either large or jumbo eggs.
  6. Try to use butter and not margarine.  Also, use real vanilla for a better taste.
  7. For chewy cookies, bake just until the dough is set, usually the shortest recommended baking time.  For crisper cookies, bake a little longer.
  8. Let baked cookies cool on the baking sheets a few minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.  This will prevent cookies from breaking.
