Make sure the oven is actually the correct temperature before putting those cookies in by using an oven thermometer.
Never melt the butter for easy mixing unless it calls for it.
I like to chill drop cookie doughs for at least an hour or two before shaping and baking. It seems to help them hold their shape better/not spread as much.
If you already know they’re a hit, double/triple and freeze. When word gets out that you made a batch of “those” cookies & didn’t make enough for everyone…..
Don’t eat a lot of the cookie dough, or you won’t have very many cookies!
I very seldom make cookies, so I’m the one who needs tips from others, because mine don’t always turn out right!
To be honest, I’m not a big cookie Baker. Sadly; I stay so busy with my 3 year old son, that I seem to be more of a Pillsbury Cookie cooker. My tip is if you want a soft and gooey cookie set the timer 5 to 8 minutes less than what the recipe calls for. If it’s still too raw than simply add 2 additional minutes and check after each timer reset!
Use parchment paper for super easy clean up.
Do not use a dark colored cookie sheet.
Follow the recipe. Always follow the recipe. 😉
don’t overbake cookies
Pms heaven lol. Need this asap!
Make sure your eggs are fresh and crack them in a bowl to avoid shells and bad eggs.
Don’t put too much flower!
When the recipe calls for the dough to be chilled, chill it at least 1-2 hrs for the best result!
Only cookies I’ve ever made were the pull apart and bake cookies. 🙂
I like to chill my cookie dough for a little bit before baking. Keep checking on them so they don’t burn.
I like to chill the cookie dough first, then dig in! Thank you so much.
My best tip is to take your time and enjoy it.
Make them with lots of love!
My tip is to refrigerate your cookie dough before baking.
If you’re measuring something like molasses, first coat your measuring cup with a little cooking spray.
Use unsalted, room temperature butter.
My best tip is to keep an eye on them while they’re baking!
I like taking all the ingredients out that I need
Don’t overbake! Cookies are better gooey rather than burned.

I use parchment paper for cookies or any baking and nothing ever sticks and it is a breeze to clean up.
dont over or under bake
My best cookie making tip is to put extra sugar in them. It makes them more crispy and delicious! I’m bad.
Don’t overcook cookies!! Don’t overcook cookies!! What is it about people that compels them to burn cookies before they’re convinced they’re done??!! It’s better to undercook than overcook cookies!! Don’t overcook!!
Set a timer! I always leave my cookies in the oven too long.
My only tip is to refrain from eating too much of the dough before you actually make the cookies.
I always set the timer a couple of minutes before the recipe says for so I can check them and usually they are done.
Preheat the oven.
Using parchment paper helps them to brown evenly and also no sticking.
My best cookie baking tip is to make them with someone you love. It’s much more fun….
My best cookie making tip is to use a cookie scoop to keep cookie size uniform and to place the scooped cookie dough on cool cookie sheets.
Remember that cooling cookies is like light baking so even if they are bit soft that they firm up after they are done cool off!
Refrigerating the dough until firm first. I make a bunch of dough and keep it in the fridge for a tray or two at a time.
do not under bake cookies
parchment paper makes clean up easy and quick.
My best tip is to closely follow the recipe and don’t over bake… some cookies bake very quickly!
Use a cookie scoop to get the same size & round cookies each time.
I like to use the butter sprays to coat the pan it is less messy
Undercook the cookies compared to overbake them! They taste better and are softer!
Read your cookie recipe carefully before starting
Don’t under cook the cookies
make sure the oven is completely heated up to the proper temp before starting to bake!
Don’t overcook the cookies.
check the oven temperature
Let your butter get to room temp.
I would say add in less chocolate chip. You get more cookie taste.
always cool them on wire racks! i never used to do this, but once I started doing it, i have not stopped because it makes the cookie so much crispier and chewier 🙂
Biggest is to let dough chill before cutting out shapes of cookies. Regular you can use right after mixing.
use parchment paper to line your pan
I recommend slightly cooler and longer cooking times for thorough cooking.
