Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

    I’ve never used pudding in cookies although I’ve seen recipes which call for it. These cookies look absolutely delicious. I need to try them asap.

  2. 2

    I am a soft cookie lover to the core (while my husband prefers crispy) so that means I’m keeping a batch of these butterscotch beauties all to myself! 🙂

    These cookies are the best! The first time we made them with semi-sweet mini chips instead of the butterscotch. So good. We’ve made them several times, and our current batch is the best: we used chocolate pudding, semi-sweet mini chips instead of the butterscotch – and English Toffee bits (I used Heath). Each version we make is – well, we think it’s the best cookie ever! And the cookie dough is to die for! I love all your recipes, Jenny!
