A cookie is a favorite nutritious snack for all ages. Markets sell various flavors but to be honest, homemade cookies give a better experience. It looks good to see a cookie jar filled with homemade cookies. Feel encouragement on introducing taste to the guests.
It will take 20 min of preparation and 10 min of cooking to ready a delicious jar of cookies. Give cookies to your child in the lunch box or serve with tea and milk. It’s always good to smell cookies on the table.
- Butter – in soft form (melted) (225 gram)
- Caster sugar (110 grams)
- Plain flour (275 gram)
- Cinnamon (1 tsp) (for taste; optional)
- White or milk chocolate chips (75 gram) (optional)
- First, preheat the oven to 190 degrees Fahrenheit/170 degrees Fahrenheit fan/gas 5. In a large mixing basin, soften the butter with a wooden spoon or in a stand mixer. Continue to whisk in the sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
- If you’re using optional ingredients, sift them in with the flour. In a figure-of-eight motion, bring the mixture together with your hands until it forms a dough. Now, you can put the dough into the freezer.
- Roll the dough into average-sized balls and set them on a baking sheet (you don’t need to grease or line it) slightly apart. Flatten the balls gently with the palm of your hand before baking for ten to twelve minutes, or until golden brown and somewhat hard on top. Before serving, place the cookies on a cooling rack for about fifteen minutes.
- You can use brown sugar instead of caster sugar to have a different taste.
- For sugar patients, don’t sugar, instead add sugar-free powdered formulas.
- Use room temperature butter for best results.
- Using parchment paper or silicone mats to line your baking sheets is a simple step that pays you big time. The paper or mat acts as a barrier between the cookies and the baking sheet’s direct heat, preventing the cookies from spreading more than you wish. The bottoms of the cookies bake up smoother and more evenly browned, and they slide right off the baking pan.
- Which ingredient can make cookies moist?
1 tbsp of molasses added to a standard-sized cookie recipe can add moisture to your cookies. If you use more than a tablespoon, your cookies will become excessively sugary and runny. It only takes a spoonful to get the job done.
- Why cookies are flat?
When cookies come out flat, it’s usually because the butter is overly soft or even melted. This allows the cookies to spread. The other issue is a lack of flour—don’t be stingy with your measurements. If the problem was a lack of flour, try adding 1 to 2 tablespoons more flour to the dough.
- I’m not sure if I should bake cookies on the top or bottom rack.
Meet in the middle is the straightforward answer to this question. Almost all cookies should be baked on the middle rack of the oven. The middle rack provides the steadiest heat and air circulation, ensuring that cookies bake evenly.
