Christmas Cookie Prep and Baking Tips

  • Get the kids together and start prepping for your favorite baking day of the year. Start with choosing which cookies you will be making.
  • Get your list together of the ingredients and shop.  I usually do this a day or two before.
  • Set out your eggs, butter, and milk so they are semi room temperature.
  • Make sure you are using fresh ingredients, like eggs, and baking powder, and soda.
  • Measure and weigh the flour correctly. Remember baking is a science.
  • Use Homemade Vanilla Extract. This is great to give as gifts also.
  • Some cookies are best if they are frozen at least 10 minutes before baking. They will keep their shape better and not flatten.
  • Use an oven thermometer to check temperature accuracy. Also, check cookies a minute or two early.
