Expert Tips

Unsweetened baking chocolate contains 50 to 58 percent cocoa butter. Bitter in flavor, it's used primarily in baking. You'll find it in the supermarket in a rectangular box containing packages of one-ounce squares or bars.

Frost cookies with a container of your favorite flavor of Betty Crocker® frosting.

Store cookies in a baking pan with waxed paper between layers of cookies.
