Hi Bold Bakers!
No one is perfect, but your cookies can be! Getting a uniform cookie is not only how to get a beautiful, professional look but an evenly baked cookie!
There are just a few steps to the perfect cookies. Now you might be thinking “well d’uh, Gemma” but it’s not as obvious as you might think.
Scooping cookies with a spoon or cookie scoop gives you a crisp outside and a soft center. Now, I know that is delicious when it comes to eating a cookie but not all cookies should be baked like this.
When it comes to my recipes for Single-Serving Chocolate Chip Cookies then scoop away my friend. The nature of that cookie is to be gooey and soft in the center while the outside edges bake crisp. If you are baking my recipe for Homemade Oreo Cookies then best practices are to slice. This is a crispy, firm cookie and slicing will do that.
How to Bake a Perfect Cookie:
After mixing up your cookie dough divide it into 2 equal parts and roll each part into the shape of log. You can do this as skinny or as fat as you like depending on how big or small you’d like your cookie to be.
Next wrap your log in plastic wrap and give it some time to chill. I usually reccommend about 30-60 minutes. This will allow whatever fat you’ve used in your dough to firm up.
From here all you have to do is unroll your log of cookie dough and slice to the desired thickness. Bake off as instructed.
The results? A perfectly round cookie baked evenly. This is because you had all the same size slices and the slices are flat giving you an even bake and perfect shape.
An added bonus is that if you’d like you can freeze your log of pre-rolled cookie dough. Then thaw out and slice whenever you really need something sweet or you’re doing last minute entertaining
