Butterbeer Cookies Harry Potter Recipe Tips:

  • Preheat Oven – We recommend preheating oven before placing the cookies in the oven. Make sure to also line baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup and for serving.
  • Combining Ingredients – Combine the ingredients with a stand mixer or electric mixer on medium speed. We like to use a large bowl to make sure everything combines.
  • Cookie Scoop – To scoop the cookies on a baking sheet or a silicone mat, we recommend to use a cookie scoop. This helps to keep the cookies about the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Baking Cookies – Make sure to not overbake the cookies. You will know the cookies are done baking when they are golden brown. The cookies will finish cookies on the baking sheet once removed from the oven.
  • Cooling Cookies – After about 5 minutes, place the cookies on a wire rack to cool. Allow the cookies to cool completely before serving.
