Tips for Baking Perfect Cookies

Here are some tips for baking perfect cookies:

  • Use fresh ingredients.
  • Use ingredients at room temperature. Cold eggs or butter will cause the cookie to harden.
  • Measure materials accurately. Use a kitchen scale or measuring cups to accurately measure ingredients.
  • Avoid over-mixing the ingredients. Do not mix the ingredients too much after adding the flour. Otherwise, the dough will harden.
  • Refrigerate the dough. After mixing the dough, shape it into a disc, wrap it in cling film, and refrigerate the dough for at least an hour, until it has completely solidified. This helps prevent the cookies from spreading too much during baking.
  • Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop. This ensures that the cookies are of equal size.
  • Preheat the oven. Make sure the oven is fully warmed up before you start baking the cookies. This ensures that the cookies bake evenly.
  • Place parchment paper or a silicone baking mat on the baking sheet to prevent the cookies from sticking.
  • Make sure the baking tray is not hot. Like the cooling process, the temperature of the baking tray is also effective in spreading the dough. Put the dough on a room temperature or cold tray. This will prevent the dough from spreading.
  • Place the cookies evenly on the baking tray. The cookies will spread as they bake.
  • Do not overcook the cookies. Gluten-free cookies bake faster than regular cookies. Check constantly while the cookies are baking. Overbaking causes the cookies to dry out and fall apart.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely before serving. This allows the cookies to harden. Otherwise, it can easily fall apart.
