April Tips for Cookie Baking Success
Butter that is too soft will result in cookies that spread a lot. This can happen when you leave the butter out on the counter too long or if you over mix the cookie dough ingredients. Perfectly softened butter will leave an indentation when pressed firmly with the tip of your index finger.
If you like thicker cookies or if your cookie dough seems too soft, just place it in the refrigerator, and give it a stir every once in a while until it chills and firms up and then proceed with baking your cookies.
If you like your cookies soft, remove them from the oven when they are still slightly underbaked.
