Tips and Techniques For Perfect Cookies

  • Measure the flour by spooning it into a measuring cup. Do not pack it.
  • Ensure that the baking powder and baking soda that you are using are fresh and not expired.
  • Chill the dough to help keep the cookies from spreading too much when baking.
  • Check the oven temperature with an oven thermometer to ensure that it’s actually heated to the proper temperature.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. Use within 1-2 weeks.
