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.

    They look irresistible 😀 I don’t have pudding mix in where I live,is there any substitution ?? Many thankd for sharing such a wonderful recipes.

    I made these last night, taste and smell wonderful. What a great way to get rid of leftover candies in the fridge but mine spread out so much even I put the dough in the fridge between batches. Is there a way to fix that? Thank you so much for a great recipe

  3. Lyss

    Made these. This recipe is a keeper. I had someone tell me these were “sellable” (not a real word, I know). Not healthy, but definitely good.

    These are a great use for the leftover candy I’m tired of staring at… but only have a bunch of mini butterfinger. How many cups of candy would you say the recipe uses?

  5. betsy

    how many cups of chopped candy do you think this was? I’m wanting to use leftover Easter candy and it’s all mini candy bars.

  6. Flee

    How much Butter is a stick of Butter? We generally just get 500gm or 1kg bricks of butter.
    Would live to try these for the Man… Yummy Thanks
