Make Cookies

How to make the best cookies:

Making the best cookies is easy if you follow some rules. You need to know how to measure flour, how to read a baking recipe and find tips for tender, perfect cookies every time. The most important tip is to make sure the flower is measured properly since too much flour can result in a dry tough cookie. You don't ever want to over bake the cookies. Set the timer for a couple minutes less than the recipe suggests and check them then.

Cookie science:

Don't be scared for this type of science is easy. Cookies are made with a combination of fat, sugar, flour, leavening, and flavorings. These ingredients are combined in different ways to produce everything from a chewy chocolate chip cookie to a dense brownie or a fruit filled bar.

No bake cookies:

These are a perfect choice for beginners. They are great for hot days when you don't want to turn the oven on. They are simple and very tasty.

Bar cookie and brownie recipes:

Bar cookies are the easiest to make because you fill a pan with luscious ingredients and bake it. You can frost them if you like. There is no going back and forth or shaping cookies and removing them from cookie sheets, which can be time-consuming. But you may be in the mood for that sort of thing.
