Expert Tips

If you bake cookies often, having several cookie sheets is convenient. As one sheet of cookies is baking, you can get another one ready to go. Let the cookie sheets cool a few minutes between bakings, or the cookie dough will start to spread before it’s placed in the oven.

Each cookie offers 1/2 serving of whole grain.
