Tips for making the best cookie
When baking cookies, there’s more that you can do than make the dough and bake. Regarding this White Chocolate and Cranberry Macadamia Nut Cookie recipe and others on my blog, here are a few tips to consider for making the best cookies to perfection!
Chilling the cookie dough: It is always good practice to chill cookie dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. This helps the cookie hold its form and come out chewier. You don’t have to, but you will want to chill the dough for this recipe.
Underbake the cookies: I always underbake my cookies. The golden time for the best cookies is 11 minutes. The cookies will continue to bake on the cookie sheet once you take them out of the oven. Once they cool, the cookies look so beautiful and golden brown that they’ll be irresistible to resist!
Use quality ingredients: I know that buying the most expensive ingredients is only sometimes the best option for everyone, but there is a difference when using quality ingredients versus cheaper ones. These cookies will come out great either way, but there is a noticeable difference between the two variations.
