Expert Tips

  • When you don't fill up your cookie sheet, you end up with unevenly baked cookies. If you don't have enough cookie dough to fill a cookie sheet, use an upside-down cake pan instead.
  • Who can resist a star sandwich? Spread about 1 tablespoon of ready-to-spread frosting on a cookie; sandwich two cookies, bottoms together.
