Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • tip 2
    For even baking, make sure cookies are the same shape and size.
  • tip 3
    Rainbow chip cookies turn out best when baked one sheet at a time on middle oven rack. Allow cookie sheet to cool completely in between batches. Otherwise, cookies will spread too much.
