1. Read the recipe completely. Make sure you understand all the steps before actually beginning the baking process.
2. Don’t overlook specific mixing instructions. Ignoring particular mixing instructions could greatly alter your final results.
3. Plan ahead. For example, measuring out all the ingredients prior to starting or making the dough and freezing it and baking later could be big time savers.
4. Use quality ingredients. For example, you should use real vanilla instead of imitation. When quality ingredients are used, it is evident in the taste.
5. It is best to use a heavy duty cookie sheet. The heavier your cookie sheet, the less likely your cookies are to burn. If you do not have a heavy duty cookie sheet, you can wrap thin cookie sheets with Aluminum foil.
6. Don’t over bake cookies. Cookies should be light brown around the edges.
7. Pack cookies in airtight containers. Other alternatives can also be plastic boxes, metal tins, glass or ceramic canisters, cookie jars or heavy-duty plastic bags. The container provides protection against breakage and prevent exposure to the air.
