Every ingredient contains its own unique quality, and mixing them all together, results in awesome. So, here are a few cookie-baking tips.
Prepare for your baking schedule. A great idea is to mix up the dough and then freeze it for baking the cookies later, or bake the cookies then subsequently freeze them; or select a day when there's no one is doing anything else. (Lots of luck with that!)
Remind the children (and the adults alike) to thoroughly wash up before they get begin.
When picking up supplies for baking your holiday cookies, use only premium ingredients. After all, It is the holidays, and you're making the cookies for friends and family, so indulge in the best.
For flavor, use butter. although, some recipes include both shortening and butter. There's a reason for doing this: By combining the two has an affect on the cookie's texture.
Use unbleached flour for superior results. .
Use genuine cane sugar. Go over the label: If it does not specify cane sugar, probably it's beet sugar, which does not work as well for baking.
Always use genuine vanilla in place of imitation.
Parchment paper is preferred on cookie sheets. The cookies turn out nice and brown and the cookies can be easily transferred, allowing you to use the cookie sheets over again . And thereís not as much to cleanup!
Read the recipe from beginning to end and measure out every ingredient before you start
Precisely follow the directions on the recipe, at least for the first time. If you feel like making a few adjustments on the following batch, go ahead.
Donít neglect the significance of specific instructions for mixing. If the recipe calls for "beating the egg before adding it," then do just that, don't add the whole egg prior to mixing. For soft, cake-style cookies, the instructions will provide for more mixing of the dough. If you're baking a chewy, dense cookie, you can probably mix the dough somewhat less.
Make sure the cookies have completely cooled prior to them being packed. Warm cookies give off steam, if trapped inside a container can make the whole batch to go soft or even spoil. Also, the painted or iced cookies should set up and completely dry before they are stored.
Pack each individual cookie variety in a unique container. or else, all the various flavors will become mingled and become mixed-up, and the moisture from the chewy soft cookies will make the crisp cookies limp.
The cookies should be packed in airtight containers. Depending upon the cookie sturdiness, suitable containers might include metal tins, plastic boxes, glass, cookie jars, ceramic canisters, or even heavy-grade plastic bags. In each situation, the container should prevent the cookies from being exposed to the air and supply some protection against breaking . Also, the most significant thing you should know about any great baker is that they constantly clean up after them self
