Cookie Baking Tips
- The best thing you can do when you make cookies is to under bake them. When you take cookies out of the oven and let them cool on the tray they continue to cook. Not only are they hot on the inside, but the baking tray stays hot, so they will finish cooking on the tray. And under baked cookies are the softest and best cookies.
- Start with room temperature butter. To properly cream butter and sugar together you want the butter to be soft, so it can fully incorporate with the sugar and get to be the right texture.
- Use a cookie scoop to ensure the cookies are all the same size. This way the cookies all bake for the same length of time and are evenly cooked.
Store cookies in an air tight container for 5-6 days at room temperature. They will stay soft and delicious for a few days, so you can definitely make them ahead if you need to take them to an event.
Absolutely, these freeze really well. You can freeze the already baked cookies in an air tight container for up to 6 months. Just take them out and let them sit on the counter until they are thawed and serve.
You can also freeze them unbaked. I like to scoop balls of dough onto a baking sheet and then put that in the freezer until the dough is frozen solid. Take the frozen balls of dough and place in a freezer safe bag and put in the freezer. Then whenever you are craving cookies you can take out however many cookies you want to make and bake just a few!
Nope, you will notice that is not listed in the recipe instructions. You can chill the dough if you want to make it ahead of time, but it is not necessary. You can go straight from making the cookie dough to baking cookies. You are only about 20 minutes away from a warm and gooey cookie!
