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. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  7. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  8. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.
