Christmas cookies

Dec 14, 2020


Christmas season is here! Families are gathering in the kitchen to bake treats for each other and neighbors. Check out these tips to make the best and most beautiful cookies this Christmas.
 
Do:
  1. Bake your cookies on a lower rack to avoid most intense heat.
  2. Take the cookies out of the oven before the top edges are brown. Check to make sure the bottoms are done.
  3. Always use real butter rather than margarine.
  4. Sift flour for the smoothest dough.
  5. Chill your dough. This helps the dough become the right consistency to be ready for shaping and cutting.
 
 
Don’t:
  1. Melt butter in the microwave. Rather use a cheese grater to break it into smaller, easier to mix pieces.
  2. Bake the whole batch at once. Rather do a test run to make sure your recipe and timing are correct.
  3. Make pretty more of a priority than tasty. Most people would rather eat a delicious cookie than a pretty one.
  4. Ice or pack cookies until they are completely cooled and icing has dried.
  5. Go off recipe. Baking is a science and going off on your own can lead to flat or unsavory results.
