Professional Tips and Tricks

  • If you plan on chilling the cookie dough before baking them, you should flatten the portion cookie dough balls slightly. Do this by softly pushing each ball down with your fingertips. The reason is that we vigorously creamed the sugar and butter together, meaning the cookies will expand further during cooking. Refrigeration reserves this process because the butter starts to set again.
  • Once the cookies are fresh out of the oven, they will be very soft. The cookies will take a couple of minutes to set.
  • Do not preheat the baking tray as this will make the cookies burn from underneath.
