So you’re thinking of baking cookies on your own but don’t know where to start, well you have come to the right place, I can tell you what to do.
First you will need the proper tools, a five quart mixes, or even a four quart mixer will do, a small ice-cream scoop, measuring spoons, bowl scraper, a good rolling pin, some table spoons, baking sheets, parchment paper, which you can purchase at a local grocery store in the baking section, and of course a good recipe.
When preparing to make your cookies read and understand your recipe, make sure your eggs are at room temperature, weigh and measure all your ingredients before you start, baking cookies is as easy as you make it or as hard as you make it, once you get the general idea of baking cookies you will love it.
Make sure that your oven is preheated to the proper temperature, some people think that you can start baking in a cold oven or an oven just as they turned it on, well it won’t work. Prepare your cookie dough according to your recipe, roll out your cookie dough then cut into shapes and place on cookie pans with parchment papers, or they may be drop cookies, in this case drop your cookies on the pans far enough apart so they have room enough to bake.
Decorating your cookies before or after baking is important for eye appeal, the better they look the better they will taste. You can decorate your cookies with colored sugar, colored jimmies, colored icings and so on, whatever you decide to do, do it well, baking cookies is an art.
