When baking cookies…………

Chill cookie dough before putting it on a baking sheet. This will help prevent your butter from flattening and losing its fluffy texture.

Chill out…………..

Chilling cookie dough before baking solidifies the fat in the cookies. As the cookies bake, the fat in the chilled cookie dough takes longer to melt than room-temperature fat. And the longer the fat remains solid, the less cookies spread. In addition, the sugar in the dough gradually absorbs liquid.

When making cookies………..

Mix dough evenly, making sure ingredients are combined uniformly. This is true except in recipes that state otherwise, such as marbleized items. Over mixing can cause cookie dough to harden, so do not over mix.

Homemade Cookie Hints…..


* Homemade cookie dough may be kept refrigerated for up to two days; cover with foil or plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying out. To freeze homemade cookie dough, wrap dough tightly with plastic freezer wrap, or place in heavy-duty freezer bag or airtight freezer container.

* To keep homemade cookies just-baked fresh, put a slice of white bread in the jar or container.

Heat the oven up and get that cookie sheet out……

* Avoid over mixing the dough. Blend flour into the dough until just combined with the rest of the ingredients. Beating adds air to the dough, which allows gluten to expand leading to a denser, touch texture rather than a softer, more crumbly or flaky cookie.


* Make cookies a uniform shape and size so that they bake evenly.


* If you own only one cookie sheet, cool it to room temperature between batches. This prevents the butter from melting out of the dough and puddling up on the sheet.


* As a rule, let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 1 or 2 minutes, just long enough to firm them slightly and make it easier to slide them off the sheet and onto a rack.

Tough Cookie!….


When you mix cookie dough, only stir as much as you must to fully combine the ingredients – over stirring can cause the cookies to become tough. Unbaked cookie dough may be frozen and thawed when you’re ready to bake. Wrap the dough tightly in a freezer bag, try to resist eating any, and stick in the freezer for up to one month.

Most cookies doughs can be chilled before baking. Chilling the dough in the refrigerator helps to prevent the cookies from flattening or spreading too much, and helps to give a nice rounded center. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 days before baking.

When the coals start to die down on your grill, don’t squirt them with more lighter fluid, which not only costs money, but can also leave your food tasting bad (not to mention, burn the hair off your arm). Instead, blow a hairdryer on the base of the coals. The hairdryer acts as a pair of bellows, and your fire will be going again in no time.
