Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Place a piece of parchment paper over your cookie sheet for quicker clean-up. Wipe off the parchment paper and reuse it for each batch.
  • tip 2
    Oven times vary, so make sure you keep an eye on your cookies when they are baking! Remove the cookies right before they are fully baked to give you a softer, chewy texture.
  • tip 3
    Let your cookies cool completely and then turn them into ice cream sandwiches. Place about 1/3 cup of vanilla ice cream between two cookies and press the two sides together. Either eat your ice cream sandwiches right away or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and store them in the freezer so they are ready to eat later.
