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.

    Can you post some variations without peanut butter? I love this idea, but my daughter doesn’t like PB (more for me!!). Could you make this work with say, oats? I imagine you would have to add some moisture?…

    My pregnancy cravings and I thank you for this recipe. Bless you! 🙂
