Hint #1 – To keep cookies or butter cakes from becoming too heavy, be sure the butter is at room temperature before you cream it with

the sugar. Try to avoid softening butter in the microwave, as it’s likely to melt.

 

 

Hint #2 – When making cookies with margarine, be aware that the firmness of the dough will depend on the type of margarine used. Be sure to use stick margarine, not margarine from a tub. Note that margarine made from 100 percent corn oil will make the dough softer. When using margarine to make cookies, you may need to lengthen the chilling time or place the dough in the freezer instead of the refrigerator. If you’re making cutout cookies, the chilling time should be at least one hour in the refrigerator. Dough for drop and bar cookies doesn’t have to be chilled.
