Greatest Hits . . . Works For Me Wednesday

This week's Works For Me Wednesday is at themed edition and the theme is "Greatest Hits."

So, from the archives and my very first WFMW post:

"Helping cookies keep their shape..."

To help cookies keep their shape, freeze them! I freeze each batch of cut-out cookies for 5 to 10 minutes before baking. They rise just slightly higher and keep their shape better. This really helps when using an intricate cookie cutter, but I do this even when baking circles.

If I'm baking a large batch of cookies, I normally have four cookie sheets rotating:
  1. one sheet in the oven,
  2. one in the freezer,
  3. one on the counter for loading,
  4. one cooling off from the oven.

Hope that helps! :) It is a question I get asked A LOT!

Is there anything you are wondering about cookie making? Post a comment and I'll try to add it to future WFMW.
