  • Use the best quality ingredients--they'll produce the tastiest cookies
  • Always use large-size eggs, unsalted butter and nuts, and pure extracts of vanilla or almond
  • Successful baking relies on the correct ratio of ingredients, so be sure to measure accurately
  • Most cookie recipes call for all-purpose flour. For the best results, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup and level with a knife. Do not sift unless the recipe specifically says to do so
  • Unless you are baking with non-stick pans and cookie sheets, use parchment paper for stick-free baking and easy clean-up
  • Chill dough for cut-out cookies, and soften it up at room temperature for a few minutes before rolling out
  • Leave at least two inches of space between cookies so they don't spread into each other
  • Adjust baking times to achieve the cookie texture you crave. A little less time produces chewier cookies; a little more time makes them crispy
