Baking Tips


  • Use unsalted real butter at room temperature.
  • Use unsalted nuts, unless the recipes specifically states salted.
  • Place sugar in a food processor for a few minutes until it is as fine as sand, and you will achieve a cookie with fewer cracks.
  • Baking soda and other dry ingredients tend to clump, so it is important to stir all dry ingredients before incorporating liquids.
  • After adding dry ingredients, mix just until flour has been incorporated, overbeating toughens the dough.


  • Always Pre-heat oven.
  • Make sure all cookies in same batch are the same size for uniform baking.

Mixing Ingredients:

  • You can mix ingredients in food processor quick and easy, although it may make recipes which contain liquids like sour cream, eggs, etc. less puffy.
