Cookie Secrets 3.

1.2.2007

Previously, I briefly mentioned that it's useful to make a single test cookie before committing a bunch of your dough. I'm going to explain that in greater detail here. If your test cookie doesn't come out right, here are some things you can do to try to make it right.

I prefer cookies that are a tad crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. I tend to bake my cookies about 90 seconds less than the recipe recommends, and maybe 25° cooler. Perhaps the Silpats that I use encourage quicker baking. Or the ovens I encounter just run a bit hot. You'll never know what you specifically need without that test cookie.
