Chill the cookie dough!

You may wonder why this is always recommended, but it helps stop the dough from spreading once the cookies begin baking.

Try chilling the dough AFTER rolling it, as it will be easier to roll at room temperature and less likely to crack.

Once you have rolled out your cookies, just pop them into the fridge for ten minutes or so to firm them up!

Bring eggs and butter to room temperature. 

Take eggs and butter out of the fridge about ten minutes or so before you begin mixing the ingredients. By doing this, the ingredients will emulsify better and will help create a solid cookie structure.

Invest in an oven thermometer

This will help ensure your oven is at the correct temperature prior to baking. When baking at an incorrect temperature, your cookies are more prone to spread, bake unevenly, over-brown or under-bake in the centers.

Use discretion with timing!

When a baking time is indicated in a recipe, use this as a guide only.  You will know your cookies are done when they begin to go slightly golden brown around the edges.

If you like softer cookies, the center of the top can look a little under-baked. For a more crisp cookie, bake a little longer so that the centers appear more set. Don’t forget that cookies will continue to bake for a few more minutes once removed from the oven.

Cook in batches

Bake cookies one batch at a time, preferably on the middle rack, to achieve uniform results. Overcrowding can result in under-baked or over-baked cookies, which is disappointing and frustrating! 

Now that we’ve armed you with some great tips to help create delicious cookies, lets get started…
