This great tip from Lifehacker can potentially save you from a baking disaster. When experimenting with a new cookie recipe — ahem, like those we’ve been throwing your way for days — bake only a single cookie in your first batch in the oven. This lone ranger will pave the way, helping you find the perfect oven temperature and precise baking time for this particular type of cookie.
Think about it: Have you ever found yourself tossing an entire batch of cookies while shaking your head and muttering, “But I followed the recipe exactly!”? We definitely have! Following a recipe precisely does not always ensure baking success. The one-cookie method can ultimately save you loads of frustration and lots of ingredients.
And if you’re in need of some yummy recipes to experiment with, we’ve got you covered. Try these delicious holiday cookie recipes and report back!
