Cookie Tip 101

Cookie sheets ~ Check your recipe and make sure it calls for greasing the
baking or cookie sheet. If the recipe doesn’t, it could make your cookies
out and be much flatter than they should. Another thing, wash and cool your
ungreased baking sheets between each batch of cookies.

I just love kitchen gadgets. Last year I bought a Silpat® baking sheet liner
and I must say, all my baking came out picture perfect. My cookies baked
and there were no overcooked or burned edges. It was one of the best things
that I have found worth the money.

Cool your cookies for 1 minute on the cookie sheet. Then transfer them onto
wire racks to cool completely before storing them.
