Tips and Tricks

  • Room temperature ingredients. Use room temperature ingredients (butter, eggs, etc) for the best cookies. 
  • Measure the flour correctly. Make sure that your flour is measured correctly.  Do not pack the flour into your measuring cups.  Make sure to use a spoon to gently spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level it off with a flat edge. 
  • Line the baking sheet. I like to use parchment paper or a baking mat.
