Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A trick for making drop cookies the same size and shape? Use a spring-handled cookie or ice-cream scoop. A #16 scoop holds 1/4 cup dough.
  • tip 2
    Unbaked cookie dough can be frozen in an airtight container up to 9 months. Before baking, thaw frozen dough in the refrigerator at least 8 hours.
