EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Save time and lower the calories! Skip the frosting, and dust cookies and serving plate with powdered sugar.

Drop dough onto cookie sheet about 2 inches apart to prevent cookies from baking together when dough spreads.

Use a spring-handled ice cream scoop to drop the dough. You'll get cookies of the same size that will bake evenly.
