Tuesday's Tips & Tricks: Stop Burning the Cookies

Cookies can go from almost done to burnt, in a flash.  Carryover cooking can help prevent a cookie disaster.  When I would bake cookies with my mom, she would always remove the cookies from the oven just before they were done.  Then she would leave them on the hot baking sheet to cool, before transferring them to a wire rack.  The heat from the pan would continue to bake the cookies.  This also allowed the baking sheet to cool, helping to reduce the chance that the next batch of cookies would burn.

I still use that tip from my mom when I bake cookies.  But, I also use insulated baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats, to help guarantee perfect cookies every time.

Check back on Friday for my,

  1. These are great tips for busy cooks and bakers. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Well slightly undercooked is always better than burnt...I do the same thing.

  3. Great tip for this time of year, Linda! I make them the same way!

  4. Great tips Linda! We all need to remember them when we bake!

  5. That is a great tip. I like to do the same thing. My family likes cookies that are soft and chewy, which is the way they end up when using this tip.
