When prepping and baking cookies this holiday, keep these helpful tips in mind:
- Resist the urge to taste raw cookie dough! Any cookie dough that contains raw eggs should be completely baked before tasting.
- Most recipes call for large eggs, but don’t worry – if your eggs are a different size, just use this chart to figure out how many the recipe calls for!
- Save time when preparing cookie dough by measuring ingredients – like flour and sugar – before beginning.
- Remember that eggs and butter should be at room temperature before mixing with other ingredients. This makes the dough smoother and easier to mix!
- Cold eggs are easier to separate, so if the recipe calls for just egg whites or yolks, separate them as soon as you take them out of the refrigerator.
