Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Avoid using rimmed jelly-roll pans, they block the hot air from circulating around the cookies properly. Invest in a couple of heavy, flat baking sheets that won’t buckle when they go into a hot oven.
  • tip 2
    Butter can make things better in cookies. If you like crisp cookies butter is the right choice.
  • tip 3
    Don’t use tub butter or reduced-calorie butter substitutes; they don’t work well in baked goods. Go for the real thing.
  • tip 4
    For easier clean-up, line your baking sheets with parchment paper, it keeps the pans clean and guarantees nothing will stick. Parchment can be used several times before composting or recycling it.
  • tip 5
    If you want to bake two pans at the same time, be sure to rearrange the oven racks before you turn the oven on. Then rotate your pans from the top rack to the bottom rack halfway through baking so the cookies brown evenly.
